Hello! My name is Rachel Atakpa, I am an honors student at the University of Kansas where I am pursuing a degree in English, and global & international studies.
This site is my first venture into the more professional, streamlined version of blogging. My past blogging experiences (a long standing Tumblr blog purely dedicated to my artistic whims and aesthetic preferences) don’t quite capture my inclinations to publish pieces that showcase my writing skills and interest in issues and milestones pertaining to and involved in our cultural landscape.
With that being said, this blog will be based around three major cornerstones: political observations and opinions, popular culture, and personal insights and experiences.
Ultimately, I’m aiming to cultivate a holistic blog for and about a holistic society from the perspective of a black girl from the midwest.
Expect posts once every few weeks.
Thanks always for reading,
