Welcome to my blog JAARA. JAARA is derived from the Yoruba word “JARA” which means “extra”!

This blog serves as my way of expressing my thoughts, sharing hopes, dreams and failures with others. It is a space to be free! A place to be extra, explore, share and relate with each other. It is my hope that through this blog, I will be able to inspire someone on my life’s journey.

I share my thoughts on life, wellness, medicine and religion. Lessons I have learned and difficulties I still encounter. My culture, family and fun. Thank you for taking the time out to visit my blog. You are appreciated.

I enjoy spending time with family and friends. Playing table tennis, hiking, traveling and spending time with the love of my life watching late night NETFLIX.

Let’s make something together.
