You know that one thing you do that makes you feel good about yourself? It makes you all giddy and fulfilled inside? That one particular thing that can uplift you no matter how bad your day was? You just love engaging yourself in that particular activity? I have that thing too! I absolutely positively love, love, love to write! Hahaha I adore it. It makes me feel so darn good! I come alive when I write.
And my love for writing intersects with my love of voicing my opinion. And so, through a conversation I had with one of my closest friends, I decided to start a blog. Before I proceed, I just have to do this. Thank you Nema for being there and inspiring me to do this. You are an amazing friend and sister!
So yes, I decided to start a blog about me! About my life experiences. About my relationship experiences. About things I hold dear like family and love. About African beauty. About my country and issues relating to it. About my views on varying topics. Yep, the blog is about me and my views.
But more importantly, it is about you. It is about how my life experiences and views can help you in any little way work through life and inspire you! And give you something to think about! And make you laugh! And entertain you!
Before I forget, my name is Shirley Godwin. I am from Freetown, Sierra Leone. Uh huh! I proudly rep that green, white and blue everyday! I obtained my bachelor’s degree in psychology from Creighton University. I am currently pursuing my master’s degree in Industrial-Organizational Psychology at the University of Georgia. I am the operations manager of my family’s business. I love to learn new things especially weird facts. I love to read. I love to debate. I love to dance. I love to sing (people envy my voice…NOT!).
Oh and before I wrap up, I just have to recognize my Maker, for without Him, I am nothing. I want to recognize my parents and sister. For they contributed in making me who I am today. Words cannot express how much you all mean to me. You have been through it ALL with me. What would life be without all of you?
Hahahahaha so I am finally done. I hope you love the blog and become a part of it!
