Since I was a kid, I have been extremely creative. I wrote poetry, drawing even though I couldn't draw, wrote letters to my family and wrote my first 'novel' at the age of five about a ballerina (my mum still has it). It is the natural Aquarius in me. When I hit my teenage years, this creativity died a slow and pretty sad death but I know that creativity is still within me at the age of 23. I had wanted to start doing something regarding 'words' again but I had been too nervous to begin blogging and afraid no one would read it, it would take me nowhere and that it was too cringy. Come March 2020, the beginning of coronavirus lockdown, I decided to take the jump and begin writing for Vocal. I have been successful enough to win a few competitions, this I how I know I am a good enough writer. But that was just a stepping stone. A little bit of writing practice.
Personally, I cannot cook. Why? Because I’m lazy. Having to cook requires a lot of time, which I don't have, and a lot of patience, which I most certainly do not have. I do not want to measure my food in tablespoons or teaspoons, I simply want to chuck it all in a bowl and like magic the whole process doesn’t give me food poisoning.
I have never had a dinner party before. Maybe this is a posh word for family BBQ or kids party at a pizza place, not sure if you can count my countless teddy bear picnics, but I've never attended something called "dinner party". However, a girl can dream and if I could REALLY have it my way (usually isn't too hard if I switch on the puppy eyes) then it would surround the theme of horror.
I'm not too fussy when it comes to houses. A nice house is a nice house, and some people will not even realise it's their dream house until they see it. So I will present to you two houses.
June 7th 2020 was a fantastic day. The day where hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of London and peacefully protested for the equality of black lives and demanding an end to police brutality. These protests have been taking place all over the world since 25th May 2020 when George Floyd, a black American man, was unlawfully and disgustingly murdered in cold blood by a white police officer. This is just one of many cases across the world where white police officers have acted in an unfair, discriminative and aggressive way towards black citizens without much justice being served through our Criminal Justice Systems. Quite frankly, this incident was the final straw.
Today I made history. I travelled to the town of Milton Keynes on 6th June 2020 to make my voice heard in a Black Lives Matter peaceful protest. These protests have been taking place all over the world from 25th May 2020 when a black American man, George Floyd, was unlawfully killed by a white police officer in the United States. This is one of THOUSANDS of deaths and serious incidents caused by police brutality all over the world and quite frankly, black people have had enough.
