Answered Prayers.

Today, am not sharing my story. I think mine has been too monotonous. I would not even call this a story; it rather is her testimony. She sent me a text a few days ago. Rioba, I want your platform to share my story; maybe it will touch someone out there. Her voice was strong, […]


The realities of being a black woman rarely get highlighted as well as they were in the TV show; Insecure. A complex observance of the lives of two different women, opposites of each other, who represent the reality of who a woman can be. Created by Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore in the words of […]

Goodbye Innocence, Welcome Inner Sense

I do not miss the innocence I carried around in my mind, and the lack of experience because I wouldn’t try it out, or being called naïve simply because I didn’t understand the pure bliss; hitting like an electric voltage being surged up one’s body, that explodes from unending tingles; a result of satisfaction of […]

Goodbye 21,Hello 22.

22nd December 2017, three weeks of being in hospitals, with no clear indication of what was slowly killing me. The weight scale scared me, wouldn’t go beyond 45 kilos.

New meaning to a midlife crisis

They blame it on my short skirt, I blame it on their short sight, They stared at me looking for perfection, In my politeness, scratch that, Without a speck of shame, I asked they look the other direction, I mean, my flaws make me perfect, They describe my journey, Stepping on thorns, crushing roses in […]

I celebrate you everyday dad.

Dad, you may never fully comprehend the joy you have given me in my life. I have had a father, a dad, a best friend and a confidant. You have always noticed when I had tears in my eyes and sorrow in my voice, and with that realization, you did everything in your power to […]
