“Superwoman” AKA MY MUM




This is my mum.

She is known as a friend, nurse, work colleague but to everyone – superwoman.

After years of rebelling and thinking I knew better, I swallowed my pride and admit that your mum does know what’s best. It’s funny because as I get older, the more I am able to understand my mum and realise how much she does for our family.

The way my mum grew up is very different to how me and my sisters have. For starters, we’ve grown up in a different country. The reason why we’re here due to the career my mum pursued in nursing. 

She has worked in different parts of the world – Libya, Philippines and now the UK.

It has always intrigued me how my mum was brave enough to pack up her belongings and move to another country. Heck, I found the move from Wales to London stressful enough. Every now and then, I need to go back to Wales to breathe in cleaner air and re-gain my sanity. 

So, as a dedication to her for mother’s day I wanted you all to know just how much of a fantastic mother she is. She has worked so hard to get to where she currently is. I’m sure that if you were to ask any of her colleagues, they would tell you about the amount of overtime she works.

I decided to ask my mum a bunch of questions related to her career and how she got to where she is now.

21 Lessons I Learned Before Turning 21


It’s that time of the year again, my birthday. As I grow older, it becomes less exciting and this year I somewhat dreaded it. It only fully dawned on me that I was getting old when my former sixth-form published pictures of their students getting their A-Level results. I thought “Oh my days, that was three years ago already!” Whilst, it should be exciting. It puts that extra layer of pressure that I need to achieve this goal within the year (Earlier in the year, I made a five-year goal). But I know it’ll fall into place eventually.

Nevertheless, this has by far been the best and most exciting. It was surrounded by some of the most important people in my life that bring me so much joy and love. So, thank you to all of you who greeted and spent time with me.
(Especially to my family, Francine, Eric, Lizzie, Bose, Jess and James and Pauline.)

I’ve learnt some incredibly valuable lessons growing up and I thought that I should share that with you!

I Don't Want to Settle For 'Average'


I don’t want to be average. I don’t want to settle for average. But I somewhat feel average.

I’ve always been drawn to bold and ambitious people because I wanted to be like them. On the other hand, I also succumb myself to fear more often than I would like.

Paris, France - The Dos and Donts (and How to Avoid Getting Scammed)


Paris, a city renowned for its beauty. Surely, it’s on everyone’s bucket list? It was certainly in mine. However, whilst its tourist attractions met my expectations, my overall experience was a disappointment. It’s my least favourite European holiday yet and I couldn’t wait to go home. 

Five weeks later, I’m still dealing with issues that we encountered back in Paris.

Here’s a list of dos and donts in Paris, don’t make the same mistakes that we did! (And also a mini-story time of how we got scammed in Paris and why AirFrance is the worst airline we’ve ever encountered)

"I Made It"


Whenever people say “University was the best three years of my life” I tend to bow my head in shame. Did I do something wrong? Why didn’t I feel the same way about my University experience? Because personally for me, it was the toughest three years of my life. And it wasn’t the best…

MY EXPERIENCE WITH RACISM


"Go back to your country!" a boy in my german class yelled
"Ni hao!” a white grown man yelled from across the street
“Ch*nk!” they screamed at my sister whilst speeding in their car

Fifteen years ago, my parents sacrificed what we once called ‘home’ to move to a country that they knew would give us a better life. Did they want to? Probably not. Did they think it was necessary? Absolutely.
