Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for dropping by. Currently I’m 21, a university student, and I have Sickle Cell. This is a place for me to voice my thoughts and tell some stories – if you enjoy reading it then amazing! For now, this blog will just revolve around my feelings towards Sickle Cell and how it has impacted me – who knows whether it’ll expand in the future. I’ll attempt to do weekly posts so stay tuned. Happy exploring.

I was always a smart kid, nothing should have been out of my reach and yet it was.
