This introduction post is long overdue tbh!...
Hey there, I’m Jennifer. I am African, from Nigeria (west Africa) to be precise. Also live and work here. I am a 25 year old who’s currently studying for an MBA and work as a civil servant at one of the government agencies in the FCT (Abuja).
When I first heard about steemit, it really was interesting to me that there was this space where you could interact, learn and also turn your likes into money, I was wowed. I got to open an account in July of last year, skimmed through a bit, got scared and abandoned it lol. This is me now trying to give it another go.
Living in Nigeria as a young/mid adult is very challenging. In terms of finances, even though employed, one struggles very much to pay bills due to tons of reasons like inflation, bad economy, bad governance etc. so any opportunity we get to make some money here we grab it by the balls (pardon me). Honestly, the biggest motivation behind me coming back to this platform is to earn an extra income. I thought about how people often say the best way to manage income is by saving and investing, that’s correct but also when you live in an unstable economic environment, you know that investing is a heavy risk that you have 80% chance of losing your money. Saving on the other hand, could mean having to cut down on spending and reducing your quality of life just to save up some money. I didn’t want to go with just these options, I believe creating multiple streams of income is a better option and that is what I look to attain at least before the year runs out.
I am active on social media like twitter and instagram where I share a lot of stuff relating to my lifestyle, interests and all. I am hoping to do same here too. My other interests are- culture, music, arts, good books, and food. Talking about good food, here’s a photo of my own healthy version of the famous Nigerian jollof rice, some of you may have heard of.
Let me clarify that, for most Nigerians, this ain’t it lol but I enjoy mine this way.
My contents revolves around living in West Africa, experiencing the good, the bad and ugly through my eyes ( I am not here to change any preconceived notion about Africa) I just want to be as real as it gets. So I guess it is safe to say - welcome to my steem blog!
I honestly look forward to interacting with many of you, also learning a lot more about BTC and much more and contributing to this amazing community. Thank you for reading my post.
