About Me

pick 13 12 39 - ABOUT ME

Hey you I’m Eleanor. First off, thanks for stopping by to read my about page. I literally suck at telling people about myself, because I pretty much always never know what to say. But since I run this blog and I obviously don’t want people guessing who the heck I am, I decided to sit down and come up with a few sentences. 

First off, I’m super introverted. I never really used to be this way, until I got into college and realized just how much I love my space. Thinking that college would make me hella extroverted, I actually ended up becoming the opposite, because I began to discover a lot about myself during those times, which really caused me to isolate myself a lot. 

Even though I do consider myself super introverted, I still love having a good time outdoors.

I am Nigerian, but currently reside in the US. I am 21 years old and I was born on the 3rd of October 1997. The day of my birth, I came out super duper dark that my mother thought I wasn’t her baby (lol).. but 2 days after my birth, I lightened up so much and ended up looking very much like her.

Growing up was very difficult for me. I was always the odd one out, and I constantly found myself thinking differently from the rest of my peers. Such made me get bullied a lot in school, and honestly, it wasn’t fun. 

A lot of people see me as an old soul, and I would love to believe they are right.

I attended boarding school during my teenage years because my parents felt it would help me become independent. But I absolutely HATED it to the point that I found many excuses to get out…. even if it meant putting my own life at risk. (It was THAT BAD).

I’m a goal driven person, and I’ve always been the type who loves to take risks. Starting this blog was pretty much one of it, because it can be quite risky putting oneself out there for the world to see. However, I saw it as a challenge and my way of having a voice in this crazy world that we live in.

Some Fun Facts about me..
