Q. What is one productivity app, gadget, or tool you use consistently?
I basically use WhatsApp more, like literally, you will always for sure find me there.
Q. How do you practice self-care in your life?
Taking good care of ourselves is paramount to the success of our life. Do you know that our physical, spiritual, and emotional health are all connected and that supporting one supports the others? Taking care of all aspects of ourselves will increase the likelihood that we stay well.
The major tips to me practicing self-care in my life are
1. Focus on your strengths.
2. Focus on solving problems.
3. Focus on the future instead of reviewing hurts from the past.
4. Focus on your life instead of your illness.
Q. What is one pet peeve of yours?
I know most people don’t know what Chiclephobia or the fear of chewing gum is.
Let me explain further, it is a rare specific phobia that manifests in a variety of ways. I’ll run away from anybody chewing gum. It causes anxiety and anger in me.
Q. What is one thing you love about yourself?
I love the fact that I had to build my confidence, omo! I had this low self-esteem while growing up and it messed with my growing up but then it was something I was conscious about and worked on it.
Q. What is one thing that makes you laugh hard?
TikTok videos… Hahahahaha it’s such an emotional relief.
