List of Gratitude (22 Things)

2022 was a great year for me in all aspects of my life. And as fate would have it, as if to balance out the good, I also experienced my greatest loss – my mother transitioned into the next realm. Even in losing her, I find spaces to be grateful for my community, my career, and in my personal life. Here is my list of gratitude in 2022.

At home in “New” York

There’s a way in which New York welcomed me. I have tried to not read too much into it, but it’s hard to not feel the city is intent on ensuring I feel at home.

Wherever I go

5 years ago, in early January of 2017, I moved to Lilongwe. I had just completed my undergraduate studies, and I told my parents I was moving to a city 220kms away. I am living my last days in a city I have for half a decade loved to call home. I am sitting at one of my favorite restaurants, writing this, for mostly me, and maybe you too.

Pause. It’s okay.

It’s only the end of the first quarter of the year, and I am feeling fairly burnt out. I have gotten used to the cycles now, and know when to pause when I start feeling everything getting too heavy.

MUST Postgrad Tour

March Vlog: I spent the past week in Blantyre at Amaryllis Hotels Blantyre, as I was having my postgrad orientation at the Malawi University of Science at Technology.

Celebrating Love | Happy New Month

As the month of Love comes to a close, I’m celebrating Love – Love in all forms; romantic Love, family Love, friendship Love. I am reclaiming the power of my pen, and I’m wishing you plenty Love ahead.

2021 Vision Board

For 2020, I only had one goal – and that was to establish the Nyenyezi Fellowship Programme. For 2021, I have a few more goals on my list.
