As we get to the end of 2019, I was reminiscing and I have noticed drastic changes in my diet and lifestyle. I think I am currently in my most happy, content place with my diet, exercise and healthy lifestyle so thought I would share some of the stuff I have learnt through my up-and-down continual battle with food and health.
On Saturday 2nd November 2019, Premier Radio hosted the Premier Digital Awards. I was shortlisted, along with four other brilliant young bloggers. Huge thanks to Premier Digital for considering me!

Finding my own cultural identity has been a long journey because I have never felt British enough to be fully British or Nigerian enough to be fully Nigerian.

‘Oh, to be so loved’ is more than a cute phrase though, it a lifestyle. It is a state of mind and healthy view of myself and my life.
It has always been my intention to pull people up with me while I rise. What I mean by this is, whenever I learn something, I try to pass on that knowledge.
I have finished my four year Journalism Studies with Employment Experience degree at the University of Sheffield.
I was recently commissioned to write a short version of my dyslexia story for Metro.co.uk and that can be read here.
With just a scroll of the timeline, people are creating and producing amazing things and it can feel like the world is moving on and leaving you behind.

Last summer I completed a 12-month industrial placement at The Body Shop International’s Global Head Office in Croydon, London. I was the International Digital Recruitment intern working as part of the International Human Resources team.
