Mental Illness Awareness Month: Part 1

Hi there. Hope you have had a good month so far. Today I have something special for you. something that is rarely talked about. Something that we are afraid to talk about. But I hope that by the end of this post someone out there will have the courage and share out their story. Not necessarily to the world, but at least with someone. This is a collaboration I did with my good friend Zynzii who has penned down the words for this piece. Many of you may not know that May has been set out to create awareness for Mental illness. Through the course of this month, through this collaboration, we hope we will create an impact in at least one person out there. With that said, lets dive straight into it. Enjoy. Do leave a comment below on your feedback and if you have anything to share, I have this forum open. Continue Reading →

Breast Cancer Awareness: The Victors – Part One

Hey everyone. This will be a different post from the usual. As October comes to an end, a pressing issue has to be addressed. This is Cancer Awareness and for this series we will be talking about Breast Cancer Awareness. This is a joint project that was conceptualized and implemented with a very good friend of mine who is not so new on this blog, Zynzii Oyiera. As part of our project we decided that we would speak to and get stories of various people that had conquered Breast Cancer. This was made possible by Hilda Muthoni who linked us to a group of women based in Nyeri, who formed a support group for people who are undergoing cancer treatment within the region. On the 17th of October we all, including our very good friend, a Violinist, Paul Macharia, embarked on the journey to Nyeri to meet this group of women. We got a chance to hear their different stories and the challenges they faced through the treatment. For us it was an eye opening experience as we got to feel the emotional side as well as the physical side to what they underwent from the time they got diagnosed with this curable disease. Here is the first story, stay tuned to the blog for more stories. Do share this widely as it may change someone’s life out there. Also do leave a comment below on your thoughts about this project.

Blended

Hello there, today I have something different to show you guys. Everyday we wear our outfits due to various reasons. Some for work, some to impress that person conducting their interviews, others to look cool for school, others to make sure that they look their best when they go on that special date with that special someone. Many times we never notice that what we wear is actually a perfect match with the environment around us. Continue Reading →

The Year So Far (Final Part) – The People

Hey everyone. What a year 2014 has been. As we all make the final preparations on where and how we will cross over to the new year, I would like to do a special dedication kind of post. Through the year very many things have happened that we may be proud of and others that we would like to flush them down the drain. In all these experiences there are people that have seen us through the best and the worst times that have put a mark on our lives. On this last day of 2014, I would like to appreciate the people that have seen me through the beginning of my endeavor on 23rd July 2014.
