    Mom Groups Suck

    Mom Groups Suck

    I recently experienced a very unpleasant confrontation after I joined a mom group on Facebook. I had joined four or five different groups in hopes of finding some new rad moms to connect with. Cool, right? Well, I found one called Stay At Home Mamas and thought, “awesome, this is perfect.” HA! How wrong I was…

    My Father

    My Father

    I love my dad. I love the job that he did getting himself to America. I feel like he lived through more than most people could ever understand. He was a first generation Nigerian immigrant escaping genocide and civil war to find his way to America. GENOCIDE, and CIVIL WAR. Like at the same time.

    Teenage Motherhood

    What is a teenage mother? Many will say a teenage mother is irresponsible, promiscuous, careless, uneducated, ruining her life, undeserving of her child, or just plain idiotic.

    An Early Childhood Influencer

    An Early Childhood Influencer

    I still remember it as if it was just last week. My younger brother and I would get packed u p (we're talking the 80's ppl.) before the sunrise, and oftentimes didn't get to see our house again until the sunset. I can remember the smell, the feeling, the exhaustion all too well. I remember having to "help" when I didn't want to and didn't understand why I would even be asked to, but still would reluctantly comply.

    Never let the society tell your worth!

    Never let the society tell your worth!

    This story of an inspirational woman in my life is extremely close to my heart since it belongs to my aunt. We belong to a very humble background, where woman are only encouraged to settle down as early as possible and men are the sole bread-winners of the family. Its just how the culture has embedded this trend within our society, since the beginning. But throughout my story, you'll realize why shattering the norms is important in today's society and why ones inability to achieve their dreams shouldn't be --- " don't do it since it goes against the cultural norms and since you'll be a shame to the family's honour"

    An Independent Woman

    An Independent Woman

    A person who inspires you is someone who has done something so great that it motivates you to do something great too. Everyone has a specific woman in their life, who they look up to because of something they did or what they went through. One of such person in my life is my mom. My mom grew up in the country of Jamaica. During my childhood my mom would tell me stories of her childhood and how her family struggled and how she made it out of that.
