Great pyramid of Giza located in Egypt. Long story short I just want to go Egypt.

Beach or safari?

Safari on the beach hahaha! Anyway I have done quite a number of safaris and I would do them over and over again. I love the vibe that safaris bring. Anyway, during this lock down period I have been craving the beach.

What’s one thing you wish you knew earlier?

It is okay to be vulnerable. Vulnerability is not a sign of weakness it is just a way of expressing yourself. So, if you ever feel the need to be just go ahead the people you think will judge you don’t really care.

There is this one time I thought I had a relationship with someone and when I reached out to ask why he was consistently behaving the way he was, he said ours was a sensual relationship and I haven’t been mad like I was in that moment. Have I forgiven them? I don’t know all I can say is I have moved on.

What’s one thing you love most about yourself?

I am always ready to learn something new or just listen to people speak about things that I didn’t know before. Let’s just say new ideas/ perspectives excite me.

Hahaha yes only to try out everything Beyonce said in ‘If I were a boy’ song and also because that other gender shocks me at times.
