A little Background

Born in Nigeria,  my childhood was filled with love until a life-changing vehicle accident at the age of six cost me part of my right arm and nearly my life. My family relocated to the United Kingdom, where my once-joyous upbringing worsened. I was diagnosed with hearing loss at the age of ten, and my limitations made me a target for bullying, resulting in a lack of confidence and attention in school.

Despite these obstacles,  I enrolled in college at 16 to study administration and work in an office. A string of misfortunes followed, including failing the course and coping with the trauma of rape in an abusive relationship at the age of 21. Nonetheless, my first work at a grocery shop gave me consolation and strength.

A pregnancy at the age of 23 offered me unexpected delight, but the diagnosis of HIV wrecked my world. Undaunted, I gave birth to Sasha-Ann in early 2014, marking a watershed moment. As a struggling single mother, I saw adversity as a chance for personal development. Reflecting on my past helped me recover my inner strength and perseverance.

In 2017, I returned to college for an introductory administration course, which launched me on a transformative road. I started the “Life With Sonia” blog in 2018 to share my experiences and support other single mothers. The site grew popular, and collaborations with female businesses and experts followed.

Life has been good to me in the past decade. I am finally in a place where I am happy and ready to take on whatever challenges that life has in store for me. I have Graduated from college and am looking forward to starting my next journey at the University.  Sasha-Ann is doing well, pursuing her interests in fashion, crafts, and swimming. She aspires to be an author and entrepreneur someday. The blog thrives with informative interviews and guest postings from experts in various subjects. Life has progressed from adversity to success, and I am proud of my path.
