Body jewellery for the mind
I have been making pieces of jewellery since I was about 10. I would say it was my first ever creative venture and I absolutely loved running off to the shops and getting supplies after school.
Wearable Art Passion
Between 2016 and 2019 I took part in a local Wearable Art Mandurah (WAM) competition. Situated just 40 minutes south of Perth, Australia, Mandurah is a beautiful coastal city with a multitude of canals weaving through from city to coast.
What My Mother Taught Me
"Ping - Ping - Ping", with a heavy baby sledge hammer in hand, my mother beats the cherry-red horseshoe into the correct shape and size until it loses its glow. "Chich" is the sound of the shoe being thrust back into the glowing coal embers of the forge, heating it up to a warm glow, for another round of hammering. Once my mother is satisfied with her customization of the horseshoe, she plunges it into a metal pail at her feet that is filled with water: "Sssssss" the metal violently hisses as a thick blanket of steam quickly rises up, engulfing my mother, to where I can barely make out the image of her wearing jeans, a worn out T-Shirt, and heavy leather apron; from my vantage point just a few feet away, as I play with one of the farm's numerous dogs.
The Solution is Inside Us.
If there's one thing I've learned, no thing you do is too small. Pennies add up. It's amazing how a small things like this can make such a huge difference in the environment. I don't know why more people aren't talking about periods in the first place, let alone how to handle them, but it's about time we said something.
Pink Tax: The Cost of Being a Female Consumer
Have you ever asked yourself why you can get condoms for free but you're forced to pay an arm and a leg for a box of tampons? Really think about that for a second- you can walk into almost any health clinic and get condoms at no cost- but this is not applicable to menstrual products. At around $9 per box, the average Canadian woman spends $6000 in their lifetime JUST on menstrual hygiene products (CBC 2018). This sends a very alarming and incorrect message that having a menstrual cycle is a choice.
The Gemini Enigma
I am a Gemini. One of the most hated signs of the zodiac. Time and time again, I have encountered multiple skeptics on my supposed trustworthiness. Apparently I am a snake, and my personality will morph itself into a demonic entity the minute I let "Gemini" slip past my tongue. My outward behavior is automatically put in a high court of the zodiac rule, and I am most likely going to be found guilty of all charges. It's pretty brutal, I'll say that!
Good 4 U, Olivia Rodrigo
If you haven’t heard yet, the upcoming pop singer from HSMTMTS, Olivia Rodrigo, has released her new single and video for “Good 4 U.” In the past few months, she has released other top songs including the record-breaking debut single, “Driver’s License” along with “Deja Vu.” This is the third single off of her debut album. Many fans have already begun to compare this song to the vocals of Paramore’s Hayley Williams and as I am writing, the song hits number 3 on the iTunes Pop Charts...I imagine it will only go up from there. If you haven’t yet seen it, take a look at the video linked below:
A Look at The Female Quotient: Its Mission, Founder Story, and Partnership with Vocal to Celebrate Motherhood
Of all the gratifying aspects of my career - of which there are many - it is a wonderful thing indeed to have built and maintained such a rich and meaningful network of relationships. Even more rewarding is to keep finding ways to work, all these years later, with the incredible individuals that I originally ‘came up with’ – particularly the women with whom I have, for obvious reasons, established a noteworthy and crucial kinship.

My Passion to Inspire Single Women to Build a Better Relationship with Themselves
According to Statista.com there are approximately 36.2 single people in the United States, and I have found myself to be included in that number for quite some time. Society has taught me to believe that my one true purpose in life is to settle down and to become a wife and mother as quickly as possible. This narrative has made me feel that happiness wasn't achievable until I found my life partner. And there were times when I experienced depression because I would constantly compare myself with others in monogamous relationships.
Women empowerment is a process of empowering women. It will raise the status of women who can't depend on another person. Women promote themselves. They can choose their path. It is part of the sustainable development of the country. Any nation achieves gender equality. They should be given education, occupations, rights, and training.
When I think of a builder, I think of someone who possesses a great deal of patience. If you're building a house or any structure, a foundation must be laid. A house or a building can't be built overnight. It takes time, and so does building people takes time and patience. I am a people builder. I am a woman builder. This is my passion. It fulfills me!
Pregnant women have to pay attention to these conditions as early as possible
Pregnancy of a woman is a great project in human life. As a mother-to-be, she has undergone psychological and physical tests. It is a common experience for pregnant women to have symptoms of discomfort. What discomforts will pregnant mothers have? How to alleviate it?
In 2019, I was supposed to graduate. I could’ve graduated. But my family couldn’t come and I couldn’t afford summer classes. So I spent another year in an unwelcome theatre program. Where the same people get to grow as artists, being cast in every show. I wanted to fit in and feel included, but I just wasn’t. I would be excluded from parties, events, hangouts. I became depressed. I wanted to make the best of another year of program, but my anxiety took over.
Selfies to Save Me in Las Vegas
I respect earlier versions of me. The woman I see in photos. She is a sensitive creature. Someone brave enough to shave her head. She is sometimes lonely, and she captures her loneliness by taking moody selfies. When I look at her, I feel transported to a time, to a place, to a feeling. And even though her loneliness can look silly or sad or self-indulgent, I remember how serious she really was. A camera is like a mirror, and a mirror is a portal. One we either enter or run away from.
