My name is Boluwatiwi.
I wear many hats, as do a lot of us. I function in several roles; howbeit in varying degrees. I am currently a daughter, sibling, wife, mother, aunt, friend, writer, singer and fashion entrepreneur who has been around for some decades. I had a rather thrilling teenage life. As I approached my pubescent years, I had the opportunity to interact and work closely with teenagers and adolescents; focusing on self-esteem, parent-child communication issues, Sexuality & Reproductive health matters. I employed arts – music, poetry, writing and drama as tools to inspire confidence, improve self-love, personal development and encourage positive behavioural lifestyles in the people I was opportune to meet. Though not the beginning of my journey, those times provided clearer, definitive paths; serving as a beacon and pointer to what I am about today.
I have not always liked some experiences and conditions that I found myself in but I sure have learned from them. For one, they have helped me to be more self-aware. Interestingly, writing and music offered my ‘way of escape’. As I often found comfort and strength in journaling. I would speak and write to myself. It was my release and yes, therapeutic too. In light of this, I thought to share some of them with you.
I am driven by Family, Excellence, Respect, Integrity, Learning and Empathy. All of these come to fore one way or another in my interactions. In a nutshell, I am all about intentional living and inspiring positive change.
Welcome to the catalogue of my walk down life-lane. Let’s explore the pages together!
We write to experience life twice – in the moment and in retrospect.
