I’m glad you made it to my blog! I can only assume that you are thinking ‘what on earth is live like manni?’, only because i would think the same thing. I will try my best to describe the idea behind the blog and its purpose. Before i get to that however, i’ll tell you a little about me.
My name is Imaan. I was born in Morocco and raised mostly in Nigeria. I would definitely say that i have always had a creative side. As a kid I was into reading, writing, and who can forget about my so called dancing career. Dance was my life (I am not even exaggerating). I remember planning to become a professional dancer/choreographer in the future. In class when we were asked to write an essay about what we wanted to be in the future in year 7, I wrote about becoming professional dancer *buries face*. Although, if I think about a classmate of mine who’s dream was to be a taxi driver, it doesnt sound odd at all. Seriously though, I actually had dreams of being in a Missy Elliot video and shaking my booty next to Alyson Stoner. For some reason, as i grew older I became less expressive and quite reluctant to display my creative side. As a matter of fact, at the age of 15, I had the opportunity to publish a book full of poetry that I had written. Too bad my insecure and immature self didn’t let that happen. Imagine being published at 15!! That would have been sooo dope. However, the past is the past and we grow from it.
Excuse my rambling, I tend to digress. On to the main subject!
‘Live Like Manni’
Wondering where i got the name from? Lets break it down shall we? ‘Manni’ was a nickname given to me by family and a few friends (well it is shortened to Manni). Personally, I have taken it to mean a whole other thing. Manni signifies the person I would like to be; confident, fun, content etc. That’s why whenever I do anything interesting in my life I call it ‘The Manni adventures’. ‘Live Like Manni’ therefore, is meant to be a platform where i can freely express myself creatively or just simply discussing things that I am passionate about. It’s about self-love, growth and development. I should point out that its not just about my own development but my readers’ too.
Hope you all enjoy reading as much as I will enjoy creating content.
