Happy Teacher’s Day💞

They may have to be rude,still they love,They might burden you,still they foster,They may scarcely acknowledge you,still they bless, they admire!! Since the very first day of schooling, a teacher holds every student’s hand as their own child’s. They make sure that school becomes a second home for all of us. They are the people […]

Discover your Writing Voice.

I don’t know about you but I’m no poet & certainly no writer. I just have this love affair with words & the way they feel when they have given the reader an opportunity to find me.

Feel my beat as you chew on every word hoping that they quell your anxieties, amplify your dreams and of course-nullify your doubts.

Until the next moment, may your days usher in the healing sun rays as your words find way to eager ears. Face all the demons that come with writing and never look forward to finding your full stop.

Writing that Moves

There’s a lot of writers here whose work I really feel, who when I read them, I nod my head in mutual familiarity. Thank you for letting me in your hearts’ canvas.

I thoroughly enjoy scrolling through different articles. Your world is never constricted but sufficiently branched out. One won’t only be seeing what they like but also what they thought they’d never like.

I treasure those ethereal moments of priceless enlightenment only you can give me and I hope that once in a while, I reciprocate the same.

Inspiration

For 200 followers-thank you.

This is a thank you note to all my followers for believing in me. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of such a great community and family.

I wouldn’t be able to call myself a blogger if it weren’t for your encouragement along the way. Such benevolent gesture holds a special place in my heart.

It’s a pleasure for me to always connect with you. I would like to assure all that I will continue to write in the best interests of you all.

To the new bloggers, all i can say is just keep going, just keep pushing, just keep believing in yourself. Few months ago I never imagined I’d be where I am now. No amount of words can fully encompass my gratitude.
If you have any recommendations on the type of posts you would admire to see more, let me know in the comments section.

How a Graffiti Artist in Kenya has Saved Lives❗

To manage the propagation of Covid 19, the Kenya Ministry of health implemented mitigation measures. These included encouraging the public to wash their hands/sanitize, wear face masks, maintain social distance and stay home.However, not everyone has been able to meet these demands!Why so🤷‍♂️
Because most of them rely on a daily wage hence they can’t afford to #StayatHome Many of these people live in Nairobi’s low income settlements which are overcrowded and where sanitation and social distancing measures are near impossible to maintain.There goes the bomb💣 I knew it would now be crystal clear that in the biggest Kenyan slum that houses over half a million people, the corona virus would spread like wildfire🥺But alas!👼 A ray came from heaven through some graffiti artists. Yes, the vandalisers of towns brought a ray of hope where the government and the ministry of health were failing. A group of graffiti artists decided to drive the message home using artistic means, which was well received by the public. In fact, only after the paintings were completed did the public realise corona virus was not a rich man’s disease! All are public health messages to avoid the new coronavirus.In a such a crowded settlement where social distancing and working from home are a pipe dream for most, the campaign is designed to teach people palpable ways in which they can shield themselves and their community from the coronavirus. There was a need not only for catchy images but also accessible language to get the message across. Some of the graffiti is in Sheng, a local slang.Unlike the stuffy government news conferences on television, the campaign uses the voices of the people who live there.After catching wind of the powerful influence that art boasts, I thought of taking off to the streets and scribble my own stuff on well-built walls but again I remembered I have been allergic to court rooms and prison cells altogether. Nontheless, I thank God that he saw fit to use Wanyande and co to rescue their community from utter ignorance.How is you and your country creatively creating awareness about the pandemic?
