Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award

What’s good, everyone? I am S U P E R late in responding to this. (Forgive me Sandra. 🙂 Back in November, Sandra of Naija Girl Next Door nominated me for a Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award. Thanks so much! Like most blog awards there are some rules when one accepts. sisterhood-of-the-world-bloggers-award1

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
  2. Put the award logo on your blog.
  3. Answer their ten questions.
  4. Make up ten new questions for your nominees
  5. Nominate 10 bloggers

Sandra mentioned in her post that the person who nominated her (Amaka of seyonhundeyin.blogspot.com adjusted the 10 question rule. Now, each nominee should “Tell us about a part of you that you struggled with (maybe a habit, nose, shape, leg etc) and how you overcame the fear.” The aim is to help women accept every part of their bodies and personalities.

This response was pretty tough for me to answer, which was part of the reason I took so long to do this. When I was younger, I always wanted to be shorter. I have always been very tall for my age and I never really cared for it. Being tall made me stand out more and I was already quite different from the people in my neighborhood. Kids made fun of me for a myriad of reasons and I thought being shorter would help me blend in more. I can’t pinpoint exactly when I found my height a virtue. Thankfully, I never walked with a hunch. I’ve accepted that this is how I am and how I’m meant to be.

I will use the same question as Sandra and I nominate the following bloggers.

  1. Eliziabeth of Leez Nijis Blog
  2. Judith of Judith Therese Blog
  3. Hilda of Moma’s Healthy Hair Journey
  4. Harlem of With Love, From Harlem
