20 Facts About Me


  1. I am a LOVER of art and music. I would literally stop my daily activities to go for an art event no matter how far. So next time you get to hear of one please hit me up. Music is food to my soul and it is indeed one of the things that when it hits you, you feel no pain. I listen to all types apart from hard rock but especially gospel music, SO SOOTHING.

  2. I value integrity and realness. I do not appreciate people who do not walk their talk. It is a virtue I look out for in people.. and realness no matter what, just be real, being you is what I always advocate for.

  3. I LOVE chapati, yuuum!!! The malenge chapatis are just amazing. Any day!! Any day! Occasionally I give out my recipe to those who want it, and I cook it for special people in my life, so if I have cooked for you malenge chapati, you are special.

  4. CEO and founder of Amira Africa at the age of 21. A few weeks to my 22nd birthday though.

  5. I laugh a lot. Most of the time I will even get to the point of being breathless or tearing. Yes I laugh a lot.

  6. I want ten kids. Our economy does not really favour having ten children but if iĀ  am able to take care of them well and none of them n lacks anything then I shall have ten kids. Giving birth is one of the easiest things if you ask me (it is debatable though), so yes! Ten children.. nine more to go.

  7. I am very social, I engage strangers in conversations. Just to get different opinions towards life as well.

  8. I talk to myself a lot. It is actually pretty healthy to do so. To the point whereby I will laugh at my own conversations. The only problem is that you do not have someone to challenge what you are saying… buuut on the upside it is healthy.

  9. I study economics and I love it. It is an extremely interesting course.

  10. I get sugar rush from eating pinpops and taking fanta. *sigh*

  11. I fear chicken! Live ones! I fear them.. I fear them.. just do not bring one close to me. I fear them. Okaaay… moving on…

  12. I started talking at the age of 8 months. Explains why I am always talking and talking. It is a gift I suppose.

  13. I grew teeth at exactly three months… maybe that is why I am always smiling. Maybe I wanted to show the other kids these white things that I have and it just became a habit… yeaaah… I think so.

  14. I am the only girl child in my family. Three amazing brothers.

  15. I am a bit bow-legged. šŸ˜€ I noticed when I was 17 years of age. I am still not sure whether it is lack of vitamin D when I was young or genetics. I rock my bow legs proudly!

  16. I have a male name. I was named after my grand father. You will rarely get me using it, rumour has it though that I have a lot of his characteristics. I am not writing it here though either.

  17. I have never learnt how to swim. I was afraid of water for such a long time, that before I knew it I was all grown up and did not know how to swim. I will learn soon.

  18. I love cooking, I love my own food. I believe I cook tasty food.

  19. In as much as I talk a lot, I get shy when I have to address large crowds especially of people who know me personally. It is ironical but who would want to mess up something in front of people who know you? They will always remind you about it in form of a joke. Strangers will go their way and you will probably never meet them again.

  20. I run a lot. To the extent that I used to run even while I was pregnant. Until like seven months about. Which reminds me I should be doing a post on how I lost baby weight in such a short time. That was one of the reasons… RUN. First though you need to get approval from your doctor.

  21. I prefer ball pointed pens to sharp pointed ones.
