Hello internet world!
My name is Rama.
A.K.A Daily Phenomenal
I am a Pan-African woman ( Half Malian, half Congolese), a feminist, a book lover, a Gilmore Girl fan, music lover and once I get my letter from hogwarts, I will be sorted into my house and become a true Hufflepuff. It's a mouthful but it tells you pretty much everything you need to know about me. I live in Winnipeg but I grew up all over the African continent. I have spent a lot of my life on the move so I am a mixture of a lot of different cultures and I absolutely love it.
As you can probably tell by now, a lot of my hobbies include reading, writing, pop culture and finding creative ways of destroying the patriarchy ( It usually involves some type of dry humor). What that really means, is that this blog touches a lot of different topics. I will be discussing pretty much any and every thing that affects a 20 something year old black female living in the African Diaspora. There will be commentary on pop culture, Mental health, Pan-Africanism,Feminism, building yourself in your 20s, books, music, money, beauty, beans, greens, potatoes, tomatoes, lamb you naaaaaaaaaaaaaaame it ( I warned you about the dry humor).
I plan on blogging in a lot of different ways. Mostly through articles, but in the creative space tab, there will also be short stories, art, pictures and sometimes poems. I wish I was talented enough to say that all the work featured there will be mine but I can not draw to save my life. Credit will be given to the artists of course and if you are an artist and you'd like to share some of your inspiring work, please do holla at your girl.
Above everything, I really just want to engage in positive dialogue about our daily lives and entertain each other because the struggle is real out here and we are all just trying to take one step at a time. I would love to get in touch with you. You can go through the contact page and/or you follow me ( My handle is 'DailyPhenomenal' on all social media platforms) and join our mailing list so you don't miss any updates.
Annnd yeah.... that is it from me, Rama, creator of Daily Phenomenal ( yes, it is because of the phenomenal woman poem). If you'd like, you can tell me about you or you can just enjoy the content on this page and let me know what you think.
