WOW, I am quite shocked but happy to receive this nomination! Being a newbie to the blogging world I have been writing for my own sake rather then to gain fame. Also in hopes of inspiring, motivating and helping others. With a small list of followers just under 100, I was quite shocked to see my blog had been noticed and nominated, yay 🙂
I would like to thank SolonTravel for the nomination. Meljean is a kind, and energetic young lady passionate about many things.

How does it work?
If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award AND YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, write a blog post about the Liebster award in which you:
- Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog. Try to include a little promotion for the person who nominated you. They will thank you for it and those who you nominate will also help you out as well.
- Display the award on your blog — Liebster logo.
- Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 200 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!
- List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
- Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post.
Here are my questions
1.When did you decide to start your blog and why?
I decided to start my blogger after my most previous birthday back in 2015. I needed a plat-form where I could be inspired to do the things I am deeply passionate about, while also inspiring others. I often rant, about the things that excite me the most which include various forms of art and fashion, along with travel and my faith. So what better way to share my love and interest for these topics then through a personal blog?
2.What is your best travel memory?
100% Paris! I like to stay positive and say it was the “best and worst” experience but getting lost/stuck in Paris with my sister girl aka cousin, Shareefah was pretty funny!
3. How often do you travel?
Growing up my family would go on at least two road trips a year, within Canada and the U.S. However, as the family got larger, the trips became fewer! Now, as an adult I am able to embark on much more travel alone and not bother about waiting on the family to be ready. Unfortunately, as I am a full time university student and a part-time employer my time is of quite limited. So for now, once a year it is!
4.Who is your biggest travel inspiration?
My fellow blogger and now vlogger, the highly intelligent, down to earth, and beautiful Amina! Currently, a PhD student, Amina is an inspiration because she exemplifies the importance of education and that you do not have to be “old” to attain higher education. Nor does your life have to be boring! She shows how it is manageable to juggle, school, work, and a social life one that is filled with adventures and travel at your affordability. A true inspiration, and I can not wait to reach such level of education, In Sha Allah if God wills.
5.If you can move anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Gosh, how I wish I could move to London, just for a few years! My reason is because so many countries are close by, making it easy to travel to several of them inexpensively and conveniently. Honestly, anywhere in Europe would work but because London is the place where I have the most family, it makes the most sense, for me.
6.What is the best food you’ve ever had and where?
To be honest I am not a foodie. I spent a day a Paris and didn’t care for food the whole day until I was heading back to London. Don’t get me wrong I like food, but I do not have too many favourites.
7.What’s the most challenging thing you’ve done?
The most challenging thing? I really can’t think of something! I definitely have my daily challenges but I can not think of what has been the most difficult thus far
8.What’s your favorite place so far?
Paris – so much charm, and character!
9.What place(s) is on top of your bucket list?
Morocco – as a lover of art, architecture, and Arabic design! I am in awe with the Moroccan culture through its textile prints, vibrant colours, and charisma. I can not wait for the day I can visit!

10.What was your most embarrassing moment while traveling?
Getting lost! Its embarrassing but honestly, I was not embarrassed because its something that will for sure happen while travelling! So I just tried to make the best out of an unpleasant situation 🙂
11.What do you hope people will learn about the world by reading your blog?
I hope people will learn that we are all more a like then we think. Yes, we come from different cultures, with various customs and traditions but there are more similarities in them then we assume. Asking questions is not a bad thing, but a way to increase your knowledge and relearn false information spread through social medias. I hope to inspire and motivate others to be the better version of themselves, do what they love and achieve greatness! Happy blogging 🙂
