About Me

My name is Nnennaya. Chisaraokwu for some. Chichi for others. Christina for few. #badgalchichi 

I am a second generation Nigerian Black Feminist. In a world that values extroversion, I have trained myself to navigate through the world as an introvert ( INTP). At times it can get exhausting but I wouldn't change my self-reflecting, slow to react, craving deep connections, high emotional intelligent self for anything or anyone. 

I love documentaries, history, Black  culture, hair, and fashion. 

I received a degree in Political Science from the University of California, Davis with minors in African and African American Studies and Communications. 

I am a graduating JD/MBA student in the Silicon Valley looking for creative and innovative ways to fill the gaps in legal services for women of the African diaspora. I am particularly interested in the intersection of race, gender, law, and economics. 

I am me. I am many different things every day and i fully embrace growth and change. While I have a foundation for justice, I acknowledge that what I may know today may not be truth tomorrow. 

I have been blogging for over 15 years, from AOL homepage to Xanga. I want to use this platform to discuss topics that effect women of the African diaspora. My expression can come in the form of poetry, short stories, prose, words, phrases, and pictures. I enjoy stream of consciousness writing. I am a night-owl so my best ideas come at 1 a.m. I am a surviving insomniac who feels I never have enough hours in the day to think about all the things I want to think of. 

 I love bright colors and bold hairstyles which is reflective of my personality. I am a risk-taker and enjoy trying and learning new things. I love to travel and learn about people of African descent.  I hope you can find at least one thing on my blog that resonates with you.
