WHO IS BEHIND ESTHESSENTIALS?
I think it is very important as an owner of a blog to develop a relationship with my readers, after all they are one of the main reasons as to why I am blogging in the first place.
So, today I have decided to reveal a few details about me. You may know some things and you may be surprised at the others, depends on how well you know me.
If any of my best friends are reading this right now, I expect you to know every single detail about me. If you don’t, bye bye… (JUST KIDDING).
WHO AM I?
I am going to reveal FIVE details about myself. For example, my personality traits, things I like to do, my biggest pet peeves and something I struggle with.
1. I AM LOUD.
Okay this first detail about myself is very very obvious. Anyone who knows me well, knows that I don’t when to shut up. My mum will always ask me whenever I visit from University how I have gotten louder and I just stare at her wondering if I actually gotten louder. I am pretty sure she says comments like that because she hasn't gotten used my loudness, even after 20 years.
When I was younger my parents used to joke that they would press the ‘mute button’ if I wouldn't be quiet. I think my biggest form of communication is my voice!
In university, I am definitely known for my loud voice and honestly I don’t care if it annoys some people, I have learned overtime to love my voice because it is something that God has given me.
2. I AM A FEMINIST.
Yet another detail that may be obvious about me. If it isn't obvious by now, then I am a bit disappointed since I constantly talk about giving women a voice in today's society and I am extremely passionate about it.
I never used to identify myself as a feminist because I always had a negative perception about them, I thought they hated all men, they wanted the world to only contain women and they loved to force their values down people’s throats.
Now however, I know that a true feminist is an individual who believes and fights for the equality between men and women.
All I will say is I am so happy to be call myself a FEMINIST.
3. I CAN’T STAND ROMANCE AND CRINGY THINGS.
Count me out all things romance. Honestly, I am just not interested until it is my time and God says it is my time.
All this talk about dating for experience and fun, I really don’t believe it. I don’t judge anyone who dates at a young age or dates for fun, but for me romance makes me cringe.
Even when I see it on the TV, I can’t help but roll my eyes.
My friends and even some of my aunties have tried to change my views when it comes to romance and unfortunately they have been unsuccessful, I will continue to guard myself from it because frankly I am not ready.
That is all I will say on this subject.
4. I SUFFER FROM ANXIETY
I have mentioned this a few times in some of my blog-posts. Most of the time everyone sees me as this confident, bubbly and strong girl… but in all reality I am not. Just like everyone else I have my tough days. I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks, which I am not going to go into too much detail about because I know I am getting better and I will be better.
I just wanted to let you guys know that just because I may look good on the outside doesn’t mean I feel good on the inside.
I know that God will get me through this and I am simply on a journey. It is not something I need to be ashamed of.
5. I LOVE TO SING, DANCE AND ACT.
You are all probably laughing at this detail because some of you may have heard me sing and think my voice is terrible.
Well, I’m here to tell you that I’ve gotten you all fooled!
Your girl can actually SING!!! Some people (the ones closest to me) have heard my real singing voice… I tend not to reveal it because I don’t want to hear anyone’s comments and honestly I am afraid. I have no desire to share my singing voice out there because I don’t believe it is my calling.
Dancing is something I just do for fun. I wake up every morning to sing and dance in the shower, it is probably my favourite time of the day after maybe spending time with God.
A girl who is so dramatic must love drama right? This is why I love to act. I took Drama in GCSE and I fell in love it, even more than English. Pretending to be someone else and being able to express a different character on stage is so exciting.
I still remember acting as though I was in a movie with my friends at Primary School!

What is in the cards for the future: I haven’t told anybody this but I am planning to start a Youtube channel in the very near future. This channel is going to be used in conjunction with my blog and will be used in order to expand and have more space to talk about the things I am truly passionate about.
I have been hesitate about starting Youtube because I feel like every blogger has one, so I would just be following the crowd. However, it is not about me anymore, it is about reaching more people and changing their lives.
I hope you have learnt more about me and enjoyed reading this blog-post!
Please share with all your family and friends. I will see you all in my next post!
