My younger sister got married last month! I'm sure she won't mind me sharing a picture! In the midst of the hectic planning and many errands, I found myself mentally preparing for the insensitive “caring” comments I would face with regards to children. I played previous short conversations in my head and wondered how I … Continue reading Conversations with my Nigerian “Aunties” Part 2

"It's not right but, it's ok"... I was listening to the famous Whitney Houston song and it suddenly brought back a lot of memories... Memories from Secondary School and memories of my journey.

I’ve started a podcast!
In 2017, I had a conversation with someone about why I had not started a YouTube channel... Again, the common argument was that people don't read as much and my posts can sometimes be too long...

The Politics of Infertility
Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending 'The Politics of Infertility' at the Houses of Parliament.
