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 an artist (micalasefaw.com) and economist. I care about the world. My eyes were already open to deep-rooted issues, but as a result of motherhood, I now see through a magnifying lens. I appreciate that lens. I have added one more person to the planet and it is my responsibility to show her how to live a full life while making a difference. So every day I ask myself:
How can I do life brilliantly? This blog is my effort to answer that question for me. Anyone else who’s curious about this question, I welcome you to my site and offer you access to my findings and lessons I learn along the way.
I explore this question in 3 ways: 1. food: Creating vegan, allergy-friendly recipes to nourish my brilliance; 2. Interviews: asking amazing and inspiring, multifaceted individuals, how they do life brilliantly to learn their brand of wisdom; 3. Book reviews: write-ups on holistic books that I’m reading that offer ways to heal the mind/body/soul that free me up on the inside so that I can shine my light on the outside.
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 trying to figure out the direction of their business; for the artist dealing with social pressures to give in to the 9-to-5; for the single parent trying to figure out how to balance family and work life; for the doctor trying to figure out how to help their patient with tremendous nutritional gaps and allergies; for the revolutionary at heart that doesn’t know where to start; for the teacher who wants to know how to be successful with their students with learning differences and 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 guests 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,
