In 2017, I made a decision to follow through on a dream of mine, I am overjoyed that I stuck by that decision and believed in my ability as a creative writer. Blogging has not only been a platform for self-discovery, but I have come to know some talented writers and artists.
So let’s get down to business, Memoirs Of Alexander was nominated for the Liebster awards by The Creative PTSD Gal whom I admire, she is not only a brilliant blogger but a kick-ass mum with a big personality, I would recommend you visit her blog and support her.

And we begin…
- What villain character could you sympathize with and why?
I tend to sympathize with villains more than the heroes because they were once patriotic citizens until the dynamics of their life was churned — while others are just inherently evil. With that being said, I don’t watch a lot of movies so my fav villain is from the book, “blood brothers,” by J.A. Kerley. Jeremy is a psychopath who turned out to have a glint of good in him.
2.What vintage piece of clothing would you like to bring back and why?
The chiffon dresses with daunting necklines that reigned in the 1950s are due for a comeback, accessorized with a hat, gloves; and for the most regnal occasions, a fur shrug. They look panache and for my 21st birthday, I rocked a black number and although one of my friends made fun of me, it was a memorable evening and I can happily check it off my bucket list. So it wasn’t a piece of clothing but a whole look
3. You’re are playing the leading role in a major film, what is the title and who is your character?
It would be called, Jewels of a shadow chaser (that sounds like a hit, right?), My character would be an ardent lady who wouldn’t have a lot of lines because she is slow to speak, yet analytical. She would possess an innocence and shyness that is child-like, easily mistaken for pride, however, she is bold.
4. When is the one time you trusted your instincts and they were right?
As a medical student, my life is plagued with examinations that seem more like interrogations. I have been asked questions that were neither taught nor in the study materials, at those dire times, I go with my gut feeling and often surprisingly, my examiner nods in surrender.
My instincts were also spot on when I begin blogging
5. What would you like to gain from your blogging experience?
For starters, more traffic. No seriously, sometimes it’s not about what you can gain but what you can offer, as it turns out, my soul urge is that Memoirs Of Alexander can encourage, uplift and impact wisdom to other bloggers by God’s grace.
6. What is your go-to comfort food?
Plantain! Plantain!! Plantain!!! with hot chocolate or pudding.
7. Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings?
Lord of the rings has a more intricate storyline.
8. What book have you read more than once?
That would be, “A Time to Kill”, by John Grisham. It evokes certain emotions that I never knew I had. I use my minuscule platform to advocate for people of color and I have a couple of posts about that if you care to check them out under Alexandrian tales.
9. Coffee or tea?
I love tea. It’s soothing and gives a certain peaceful vibe with pleasant flavors. I drink coffee rarely.
10. Where do you find inspiration when you are stuck?
I draw inspiration from everything, most especially, my journal, nature, from the words of others as well as their behavior, In music. Everything.
11. What is the one holiday you go all out for?
Unfortunately, none. Perhaps I’m boring but I really just go with the flow. It highly depends on how busy I am, and who I’m spending it with.
