An Open Invitation

Are you somebody who makes plans to make plans? That’s so me, but I figured I’m going to have to be more of a floating body going along with the flow when it comes to blogging, squeezing in some me time whenever I can, otherwise I’ll never find the time to do what I love!

Hi y’all!  

My name’s Shiza and this is my first blog post. That might puzzle previous followers of my blog At Your Service, but all I’ve done is packed my bags and transitioned to a self-hosted WordPress site and I must say, I’m enjoying the freedom that comes with it. Without further ado- 

This site is still undergoing construction, but it’s primarily designed to revolve around my passion for telling stories. Here you’ll find me taking you on this journey we call life, documenting others and my own struggles as a college student or even just as a citizen of this world. Being trilingual, you can expect to see international content presented here as well.

You know how they say, “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything”? See, now that resonates with me. I’ve moved a lot and I’ve seen enough to want to take a stand for what’s right and to take a stand against what’s wrong, and whether I come across opinionated or not, I will no longer trade my authenticity for somebody’s approval. Neither will I follow a path laid for me by others.

To put an end to this first post, it should come as no surprise that my concentration’s Journalism. As a media studies major, I get to learn and work with a variety of people and equipment, seeing what medium’s best to deliver such and such information. It’s a thrilling field to work in and, with it, I hope to be of great service to the public and bring forth genuine stories.

 

P.S. Don’t hesitate to engage with me! Leave a comment or shoot me an email, I’d love to know what topics appeal to you, what you’d like to hear about or see covered.
