Thank you so much for visiting my site!
I’d love for you to know more about me so here it goes:
I was born in Sudan, my ethnicity is Eritrean, I grew up in San Francisco, California and came to the US as an 8-month-old refugee with my family. So the question, “where are you from?” is a bit of a challenge for Homegirl.
I’m a poet-artist (micalasefaw.com) and a mom with a consciousness of an economist. I care about the world and my eyes have been open to deep-rooted issues that I understand only because of the lens I’ve received through motherhood. I appreciate that lens. I have the privilege of adding one more person to the planet and the responsibility to show her how to live a full life while making a difference. So I have this question:
How can I do life brilliantly? This blog is my effort to answer that question for myself and anyone else who’s curious about the answer.
I explore this question in 3 ways: 1. food–by pushing myself to create vegan, allergy-friendly recipes; 2. interviews–by asking amazing and inspiring moms and dads how they’re doing life brilliantly; 3. write-ups on holistic books that offer ways to heal mind/body/soul.
I’m heavy on highlighting moms and content that reminds us to care for ourselves so that we have enough to give to others. Common sense 101, but we tend to forget that in order to help people in our world thrive, we got to have it going on for ourselves first. But Do Life Brilliantly is also for the entrepreneur who’s dealing with social pressures while trying to figure out how to balance family and work life; for the nutritionist who’s trying to figure out how to feed someone with tremendous allergies; for the teacher who wants to know how to be successful in their work while dealing with a child with sensory processing disorder.
I believe that this blog can provide a learning opportunity to anyone who is interested in building in themselves the deep empathy, determination, and awareness that the guest on Do Life Brilliantly will provide.
While I set up this platform for interviews, enjoy my food videos and holistic book recommendations.
I am hoping that by sharing my quest with you and the wisdom of guests, I will add value to your life. If that is the case, please let your Homegirl know at, email@example.com. I’d love to hear about it.
To doing life brilliantly!
Thank you for joining me,
