About Shikha

I've been hanging out on the Internet, starting and ending blogs and watching the growth of social media and internet marketing for over a decade. After being an observer for some time, I decided to re-enter the blogging sphere in 2015. 

I moved to Boston, Massachusetts in 2008 from my hometown, Kinshasa, D.R.Congo to pursue my undergraduate studies in Marketing and Media Arts and Society. After a number of business-related internships and jobs, I realized that although I enjoyed what I was doing, I felt that there was a piece missing to the puzzle. I ventured into a spiritual and self-development journey, seeking to find my authentic purpose and identity.

In the process, I moved to San Francisco, California, changed my career path to psychology, pursued my masters in it, and recovered from depression, anxiety and trauma. I found my freedom through photography, writing and design, and endorsed a creative, healthy and authentic lifestyle. In a span of four years, I've become a better version of myself, and every day I still work on polishing my internal mirror. Presently, I've returned to Kinshasa, D.R. Congo to teach English and Literature to middle and high school.

In this personal blog, I want to provide information that helped me grow into the individual that I am today: carefree, self-aware, passionate about life and most importantly, happy. I want to share personal narratives on my diverse, cultural background and to create awareness on mental health. Last, but not least, I want to empower you, the reader, to believe in yourself, your dreams and purpose in life. If I can do it, then you can too.
