Over the past couple of months, I've been blessed and honored to be in the midst and acquainted myself with some fantastic women in society who are movers and shakers in various areas of life. These women include Dr. Sarah Weddington, Ms. Eleanor Clift, and Dr. Katrina Bell McDonald.
On March 28th, I had the opportunity of meeting Dr. Sarah Weddington. The program was c...Read Full Post »

The Bulom people were thought to have been the earliest inhabitants of Sierra Leone, followed by the Mende and Temne peoples in the 15th century and thereafter the Fulani. The Portuguese were the first Europeans to explore the land; the name Sierra Leone is derived form the Portuguese word "Sierra Lyoa" meaning "lion mountain" coined by Portuguese sailor, Pedro Da Cintra, due to the plateux and shape of the land. Mangrove swamps lie along the coast, with wooded ...Read Full Post »

The perception of autism as being a disease that's a function of "an extreme male brain," as one expert put it recently, makes it harder to help autistic girls. As Liane Holliday Willey, who has Asperger's and is the author of "Pretending to be Normal: Living With Asperger's Syndrome," put it, "Females are grossly underdiagnosed with autism. We do not 'present' as loudly as boys do."

Spring semester is quickly coming to an end, of course. As a student, these are the times that one has multiple emotions: excitement for summer break/vacations, sadness due to separation from friends, hopelessness due to weather change, and also that mini-heart attack of final exams approaching and thinking that you've learned nothing all semester/year-long. There are many more that are also unmentioned. These are the times that all the love an...Read Full Post »

A year ago, I wrote an entry detailing the reasons why autism awareness is dear to my heart. In this entry, rather than saying much about why I care, I'd like to showcase some individuals with autism in a series of videos. In one of the videos below, a boy stated "don't judge me before you know me." That really resonated to me, and that is one of the reasons why I find ...Read Full Post »

Part 1: The Mind-Set of a man
Chapter 1: What Drives Men
In this chapter, Harvey talks about the drive of men and they are: "his title (who he is), how he gets that title (what he does), and the reward he gets for the effort (how much he makes). These three things make up the basic ...Read Full Post »

One of my resolutions for this year and beyond is to read more books to educate myself beyond topics that are of interest to me. So far, I've been doing well in reading the Bible more than usual. But not very successful with other books. So in order to keep up with my resolution, I've decided to write reviews for each book I read; this will be my personal incentive. Also, there may be some people that would have interest in what I have to say.

It is NOT your fault
You DIDN'T ask for it
You DIDN'T wear the wrong outfit
You DIDN'T deserve it

There's been something I've been wanting to write about for the longest, but just haven't had the time and focus to do so. BUT I can finally do it now! It has to do with people that find humor in certain topics but in return is offensive to others, also those that make silly remarks and not think about the repercussions of their comments. As one gets older, I believe that the mature thing to do is be wise about your comments and choose your words wisely. Yes, I support...Read Full Post »

A conversation I've had a few times with friends and acquaintances is how I can get more audience with this website and my social networks to read my posts on advice and life adventures. My regular response is that it does not matter and whoever the message must be conveyed to, will get it at some point. Yes, I know I could put more work into getting the word out there with a few tricks, but I believe that when one needs knowledge, they must seek it.... Read Full Post »

Three months ago, I watched a live Youtube stream for World AIDS Day 2011, sponsored by One Campaign. During one of the panel discussions with advocates for this day, Bono (U2 singer) mentioned that Africa has a bright future, and we should ask countries like China about this, because they see it and that is why they are going there more than ever now. Although I do not remember w...Read Full Post »
