What we try to conceal

Did you know that there is nothing wrong with the way you look? That spot, that scar, that excess bit of fat, the blemish on your cheek does not decrease your worth or your beauty. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. I know it can be so easy to look at yourself and compare yourself... Continue Reading →

When things don’t quite go to plan..

Throughout my A-levels I tried extremely hard. Choosing three subjects that had little relevance to each other and without having a clear career plan it was destined to be quite a bumpy road. And that it was just that. I chose English Literature, Maths, Psychology and Biology when I started sixth form and the first... Continue Reading →

Take a breath….

Does it ever feel as if you are running a constant race? As if even if you lay completely still, you're still exhausted? Me too. Someone asked me that about two years ago, when they saw I was stuck in a constant cycle of overthinking and never getting the results I want to. I wish... Continue Reading →

It without a doubt that social media is used to... Continue Reading →

Slow Starts, Things Change

At the start of last year I set myself a number of goals. Looking back in hindsight, although some of them were reachable and I did achieve some of them, a lot of them I'm yet to achieve. The truth is last year didn't go quite how I expected. It wasn't awful, but I believe... Continue Reading →

What society dictates

We live in a paper world. I don't say that to limit the beauty of creation but rather to question humanity and the arguably universal societies in which we live. Perhaps you could call this 'social satire'; it's an absolute joke. First of all, I want to address the big obsession that we as a... Continue Reading →

melanin.

For the majority of my life I have been surrounded with people from all over the world. In fact my friendship circle consists of British, Hungarian, Nigerian, Indian, Polish, Pakistani, Dutch & Bengali people and many many more. The clash of cultures has taught me to not merely tolerate and accept race, but to completely... Continue Reading →
