TELLUS A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF
I'm a student at the College of Medicine, university of Laos studying Dental Surgery precisely. I'm also a Fashion stylist and men's fashion blogger. I love the good things of life, lol don't we all? I have a profound passion for fashion and aesthetics generally as well which is a huge drive for what I do.
BEING A MEDICAL SCHOOL ISNT AN EASY FEAT, HOW DO YOU JUGGLE BETWEEN BOTH WORLDS (FASHION & MEDICAL SCHOOL)
That's very true! It's definitely not an easy feat, no where closed to that infact but there's almost nothing that's impossible if you are determined quite passionately to do it and with God on your side, now that's ultimately important. Time management as well, I take my time very seriously because my schedule doesn't allow me to waste It and I've so far been able to set my priorities and structure my time that being a fashion lover does not conflict with my education and support from my family and friends is a major factor too.
HAVEYOU ALWAYS BEEN FASHIONABLE, IF NOT WHAT WAS YOUR EARLIER PERCEPTION OF MEN IN FASHION
Lol I can't remember if I wore the trending diapers when I was a baby but for as long as I can remember I'd like to believe so, even when all the school uniforms were the Same back then in secondary school, I still paid extra attention to every detail. Ive always percieved men to be well dressed, even when it's casual, because your style is an expression of your personality.
WHATIS FASHION TO YOU
Fashion is many things to me. It's a mirror where I see a reflection of myself and the world infact. Apart from the beauty of it, it's also very important in so many other ways. Communication being one of the most important. You express yourself with the clothes you wear.
THEFRINGE BENEFITS THAT COMES WITH BLOGGING
Being a blogger exposes you to a lot of people and also makes them exposed to you. It's you letting people know certain things you want them to know and there's a feeling of fulfilment kinda that's achieved from that. You get your ideas out there, get feedback, you'll be amazed at how many thinkers are out there, you create relationships and business links as the case may be, that's a lot of benefits already!
WHAT NOTION ABOUT AFRICAN BLOGGERS DO YOU THINK NEEDS TO BE CHANGED
There's this general prejudice that most African bloggers are just jobless people that have nothing to do with their time and just spend all of it in front of the computer. I can't speak for everybody either but for those that blog about creative and constructive things, that's rather disrespectful and discouraging, some people devote time out of no time to get word out that you just might not get easily elsewhere and I think they should be appreciated more, for those that already do, they are the real MVP's!
FAVORITE WARDROBE PIECE
Lol I can't pin point one thing sadly, I have a favorite wardrobe piece at different times, sometimes when it's new, it automatically is my favorite, sometimes when it's what I need the most, it becomes the one.
HOW HAS YOUR BLOG INSPIRED UPCOMING MALE BLOGGERS
I actually get a lot of messages from guys telling me how they love my blog, how do I keep up, how there's no time and all but the consistency is the fact that they all have a common interest and passion, all they need is fuel to the fire y'know. So I just try to keep doing what I love, making it obvious that it really is possible to merge because that's the most common reoccurring problem.
YOURUSUAL ADVICE TO THEM AND TO BLOGGERS WHO MIGHT WANT TO FOLLOW IN YOUR STEP
Identify what your passion is. Its really about them not me because we're all different people. It's fine if it's a contrast to your profession, it Might not be easy but if you're willing to make little sacrifices for your passion, then it's possible. Manage your time properly, don't forget the important things, God, Family, Friends. Contrasts are inevitable but Conflicts shouldn't result and be diligent.
FUNFACT ABOUT YOU
Lol I'm a football fan, I love love love football. I play, I watch and all of that, I wonder why some people find it hard to believe.
