To give a brief introduction of what UnikBlogGist is all about, just incase you are wondering what will be going on here and what to expect. UnikBlogGist started on the 10th of February 2019 on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter (http://www.instagram.com/unikblog, https://fb.me/unikbloggist and http://www.twitter.com/unikblog) as UnikBlog which is the main name of this blog/brand. However, the website is called UnikBlogGist which isn’t that bad, right? After all, in a nutshell, ‘gist’ is what I will be posting. lol, okay, I just told you what this blog is about. The screenshot of the Instagram page (below) gives a breakdown of what the ‘gist’ will be all about.

UnikBlog is owned by me. And who am I? yeah, I know you possibly just asked that in your mind, lol. I am a lot of thing, but to keep it short, I am a Nigerian lady in her twenties, currently pursuing a Chemical Engineering PhD in the USA and who loves telling stories. Hey, wait, before you start imagining me to be an uptight, no-fun Researcher, or Scientist or PhD, just erase that from your mind because I am a fun-loving, fashion loving, natural hair advocate, dark skinned, slim lady who is also a Foodie (I leave you to wonder why I love food and yet remain slim) and I love traveling. I mean, if I wasn’t all of these, I wouldn’t be here owning a blog and giving you this ‘gist’. Okay, back to the introduction. lol.

I love to tell stories about things happening around me; I could be in the comfort of my living room and I have a story. I could be having a conversation with someone, and a story pops up. I could be in a bus and see two people holding hands or kissing (yeah I see this a lot, please don’t judge me. lol) and I already have a story in my head. So, what better way to make the world fun if not to share my everyday stories with you, and yours. I also love to engage in enlightening conversations and I have been told that, I am a good listener. And oh, someone just told me few minutes ago that I am such a nice person. I know, I am not supposed to add the last statement here but I just love to give you ‘gist’. lol.

Also, I am passionate about empowering young people especially when it comes to academics. I have worked with young people, been through Nigerian school system (with a First Class Engineering degree) and now American school system, so trust me when I say, I can give very helpful advice (expect a post on this soon). In general, I am good at offering encouraging words of advice for issues in life. I have had conversations a couple of times with people battling with depression and possibly considering suicide and found a way to talk them out of it. I know I am still in my twenties but trust me, I have an old soul.

The sole aim of this blog is to share my stories with you thereby enlightening you and probably entertain you. Expect to learn, be inspired, motivated, laugh, and live a worthwhile life as you keep in touch with UnikBlogGist. Once again, I am happy to have you here.
