Breaking my Fast – Breakfast??

Black book, Black film

I've lived in London all of my life. Born, bred and raised here, basically. It's crazy how multicultural my city is. Only forty-four percent are white British. So growing up in London teaches you to be tolerant and aware of different cultures and traditions. I am also proud to say that I've never experienced racism…

Book review – Leona Lewis’ ‘Dreams’

  I’m not usually a fan of autobiographies or biographies, but Leona Lewis has single-handedly changed that idea with this one book – ‘Dreams’. Unlike, other celebs, Leona didn’t fill the book with a million-and-one facts about herself and her life, she briefly outlined her story of how she began to live her dreams, hence…

Who do you think influences you more – your family or your friends?

So, I’d like to discuss the idea that nowadays friends and peers influence teenagers more than their families do. Is that true? And if so, why is that? I mean, surely the people who birthed you, looked after you and everything in that nature should be the people you look up to the most. I…

Party like it’s my birthday

WOW, the title is quite misleading, because I am not partying but yes, it's's my birthday. Yay! I'm grateful to God for adding another year to my life. Another year older, wiser, stronger etc..
