My name is Malika. A name I hated because it means funeral where I was brought up and my peers loved to call me " matanga"( funeral). My father kept insisting that it means " a winner". Now years later and I love the name. Maybe because here in this big city people think its cute and unique, or because its not easy to tell which race or tribe one comes from. This only works in Nairobi .
Anyway. I started writing and I have realised its the only constant thing in my life. It's lasted longer than most relationships.
I like to share random thoughts. Thoughts i feel will inspire and empower someone. Sometimes, i just want to express myself. To let out my deepest thoughts, desires and secrets through pen and paper, keyboard and mouse.
I want to write about my life the best way i know how. And also write about nothing. Or just write because I want to. Because I can choose to write.. That's what freedom is to me. To be able to make a choice.
