INTRODUCTION: My first blog post

           Super excited that I am finally doing this and even happier about the support, love and encouragement. You have no idea how much it means to me that you are reading my blog post. Thank you. It’s only normal to introduce myself so here we go.

           I am Salmah and my name means PEACE so I hope you are at peace, or find peace every time you visit this blog. I am a 20 year old Nigerian Muslim based in Ibadan, southwest Nigeria. I am currently a third year medical student in the University of Ibadan, first child of four; a sister and two brothers. I love my family so much and I cherish the bond that we have. I love my morning coffee, it is everything to me. I strive to be better spiritually and my religious life means a lot to me. I love traveling, I have visited about five countries and I hope to visit many more. I love style, beauty and fashion but I try to keep it modest and simple. My best colour is blue ( I think I am obsessed with the colour).
                I love watching YouTube videos and I have a few YouTubers I admire( maybe we will talk about them in one of the blog posts). I love Oprah Winfrey, I listen to her Supersoul conversations and I enjoy the podcast. I love shopping too, clothes, groceries, home decor and all that. Food is important to me, it’s a key part of my love language. Nice restaurants with sumptuous meals and great ambience are great ways to cool off and reset when I need it. I don’t cook alot, I buy mostly. I love skincare too, it’s a big part of my life, I invest in skincare products and I can’t wait to be able to afford my ideal skincare brands. I am a plant mum, I have two indoor plants at the moment and taking care of them has been fun, I hope to get more plants.
                      I am very passionate about mental health and it’s one of the reasons I decided to start this blog. In 2017, I started a personal journey on identifying my mental health struggles and it’s been an experience, with major “highs” and “lows” and  as I continue to meet people, I realize the importance of mental health and the topic gets even more appealing. I love listening to people, encouraging them and offering as much support as I can. I am the motivational speaker in my group of friends even though I need a lot of motivation myself.My ambition to become a medical doctor means a lot to me, I might delve into other things but medicine is my first love in my quest to help as many people as I can.
                       This blog is going to be about mental health, religion, my journey as a Nigerian medical student and my lifestyle in general. My lifestyle revolves around travelling, shopping experiences, and day to day activities. I hope to tell as many stories as I can, interesting ones, while I also make impact. Thank you for joining me on here.
