“What’s your favourite country visit?” is often a hard question to answer. I’ve just returned from the glorious motherland, my parents’ original home, and experienced it in the best way I could imagine.
It’s refreshing knowing that through my social media accounts, I was able to change ignorant minds and thoughts about Nigeria.
The government is a bit of a shambles at the moment, currency isn’t amazing, and of course, in a country with a population of over 180 million people, would there be corruption operating in (some) areas. But not all. Knowledge is power!
From the city to networking events to the village, it truly felt like home being able to see so much of it in such a short space of time. I reconnected with brilliant people living in Nigeria, and couldn’t help but imagine what life would be like living there.
The most gorgeous gallery with so many lovely pieces!
At a gorgeous hotel with amazing staff and outdoor pool!
At The Wheatbaker for such an informative and inspiring event.
Brexit, Captalism and Trump got you thinking you can't have a holiday. Breaks are healthy. Don't let anyone make you feel bad for taking a holiday/having some self care. No one else is going to look after your mind and body. Those late nights and long shifts are necessary, but feeding your soul is even more necessary. How do you expect to constantly output if you won't put in to your creativity? Work hard and recoup even harder. If we don't enjoy life, what's the point?
And last but not least, a very big part of this trip was about a woman I care for so dearly and decided to film for something I’m working on! ::
