Miss Independent Blog is Back!
I took quite a long break from blogging and it feels SO right to be back. I am really excited for my readers simply because I love the lady that I have become and the space that I am in general.
I am writing this with SO much happiness, energy and joy - and I can’t tell you why I am happy, I just am. Sometimes my colleagues text me “why are you dancing?” - I tell them “When I am not working, I am dancing, if not both.”
I’ve been on awakening journey since I stopped blogging and I can’t wait to share it with you in form of inspiring interviews, fire articles on Mondays to start off the week with all the right vibrations and from time to time, I will have guest posts from my powerful network of friends.
This time round I want to add a section on travel, but focussing more on how travel contributes to well-being and growth. I went to Rio, Brazil last year for my 26th birthday and I learnt a lot about myself. Travel when you can, this world is indeed our oyster.
For those that are reading my blog for the first time, my name is Esther Kinuthia, Kenyan, 27, live in Dublin and currently working for Google as a Solutions Consultant, Measurement & Attribution.
In simpler terms, I can look at data and spot opportunities/problems that need to be explored/fixed. What I do is quite critical because business decisions are made from data, so I need to ensure that I offer accurate solutions to our clients.
Miss I Blog seeks to Inform, Inspire & Ignite the youth. I used to say African youth but now that I have been giving advice to different nationalities since 2015, I might as well think global.
International Interviewees/Topics: I believe this is a plus, imagine interviews from London, Dublin, Paris and so on. I plan to be quite international to offer a broad perspective on different topics.
Super Confidence: I want my readers to join me in being extremely confident about themselves. There is not going to be pressure to suddenly become confident, more of coaching/mentorship from either myself or interviewees. It’s a journey!
Self-love during our Worst Time: It’s crazy how many of us secretly don’t love ourselves. In a way, self-love has been positioned as lack of humility, but that’s not the case. If you can’t love yourself, how can you love others?
Self-love during our Best Times: Our brains can self-sabotage often if we are not careful. We are going to learn how to enjoy things without being afraid that if we do, we might lose them.
Direct but empathetic communication Style: I have progressively become a direct person. That said, I do believe in empathy and compassion, it’s what makes me Esther.
I am looking forward to this phase of the blog.
