The Liebster Award! ( Where Would I Travel to? / Why I started blogging/ My New Year Resolution and much more...)



Happy Friday! I hope all of you are doing well. One of my blogging friends Emily from the blog FearfullyWonderfullyme nominated me for the Liebster award! I do not usually participate in this but I like the questions so I thought I'd go for it. 
P.S: I'm not that creative when it comes to asking questions so I only asked 5 (haha) & check out my Instagram to see the people I have nominated(:  Hope you enjoy! 



The rules for the Liebster Award are:
1. Acknowledge the blog that gave it to you and display the award
2. Answer the 11 questions that the blogger gives you
3. Give 11 random facts about yourself
4. Nominate 11 blogs and notify them of their nomination
5. Give these blogs 5 questions to answer.


1.    Why is writing/blogging so important to you?
I truly believe journaling saved my life in middle school and high school. That is why when I ran into this idea of blogging I jumped into it right away because I am driven by the idea that my words and experiences can be relatable for someone else.

2.     Do you have any pets? If not, would you want to adopt a pet?
     No I do not have any pets, I use to have a gold fish when I was like 10, till this day I have no idea what happened to it ( died obviously lol). I would love to adopt a puppy in the future that would be fun.  
    
3.     What is one band or musician who you are obsessed with?
I have been and will always be obsessed with Demi Lovato. Her new album “ Tell ME You Love ME” and her documentary “ Simply Complicated” is all raw, authentic and inspirational.

4.     How do you feel about New Year’s resolutions?
 Umm.. I did not make New Year Resolutions.. (awk). I know everyone has them I probably should to. New Year Resolutions are so important because it helps you in a way get motivated to start fresh. I guess my overall goal this year is to work on my mindset. I want to do better at controlling the things I say and think to myself because I notice how damaging it can be to my mental health.

5.     Do you journal?
 Yes, I journal a lot to be honest I do not know how else I could make sense of life without journaling and writing out my emotions and feelings.

6.     Name something you are passionate about.
I am really passionate about the emotional and mental health of underrepresented communities especially the young teens/adults. I hope that through my writing I can uplift those who are struggling in those areas.

7.     What is the last book you’ve read?
I am the type of person who will be in the middle of three books at once. So I do not have one that I have completely finished. Nevertheless the novel Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi is a book that I am really getting into at the moment and I’m close to finishing it. I highly recommend it (:

8.     Who in your life has been an encouragement to you lately?
My sister is a huge encouragement to me. Her perseverance and willingness to strive for nothing but the best while also being humble in her faith is admirable. She has been a really big support when it comes to my mental health because she is just that type of person that when you talk to her she uplifts your spirit and makes you want to climb Mt Everest lol.

9.     What is your favorite way to practice self-care?
Anytime I have the opportunity to walk somewhere by myself I will take it. For example walking to my bus stop in the morning, walking to the store by my house. I feel like we are so invested in cars and public transportation but I have noticed I am a walker/ runner after a good walk my mood seems to brighten.
  
10. Where have you traveled? If you don’t travel much (like me), where would you like to go?
I do not travel much but my biggest dream is to go on a mission trip and travel all around Africa. It only makes sense that when I travel one of the first places I visit is my parent’s homeland.

11.  How do you feel about winter?
I’m a summer baby. So I am not a huge fan of the rain, but the little winds that has been flowing in CA lately has been nice.


5 Questions 

1. Who/What inspired you to start writing/blogging? 
2. Name one good thing that has already happened to you this new year
3. What song have you had on repeat lately?
4. What is one funny memory you have with your bestfriend? 
5. What is the last movie you have watched? 


Feel free to answer these questions whether I nominated you or not! I would love to read your answers in the comments!
