“There is nothing more powerful than a woman who believes in herself”

Hello! My name is Nkeiruka Medani (NK for short). I am 26 years old and live in San Francisco, California. I came from a large family; 2nd oldest out of 5 siblings, all of whom live in my hometown of Federal Way, Washington or the Greater Seattle Area. I decided to move to San Francisco seven years ago, when I committed to attending the University of San Francisco. For me, leaving my home of 18 years and venturing out to a completely different state was terrifying. I grew up soft-spoken and timid. I was often overlooked throughout grade school and high school, and was teased and bullied for traits out of my control. As hesitant as I was to venture outside of my comfort zone for college, I knew it was the biggest opportunity in my life thus far to not only step out of my comfort zone, but to step into my full potential. Throughout my 4 college years, I slowly made friends and grew in confidence and self-assurance. I declared my major as accounting during the first 2 weeks of Freshman year, mainly to play it safe but also because I was naturally good with computation and excel. I was on the executive board of a few clubs, on the honor roll, and even joined a sorority. I got a full-time job offer after 3 consecutive summer internships at the public accounting firm, KPMG. I became super ambitious and self-motivated. I graduated with a major in Accounting and a minor in Public Relations. Once I started full-time at KPMG, I noticed that although I was learning a lot, building an extensive professional network, and making close friendships, I felt a void in my life. I noticed I had lost the spark that I ignited in college when I was so passionate and focused on getting to the next step of my life. I noticed I became complacent with where I was at and I wasn’t growing in the ways that I knew I needed to truly be satisfied.

Since starting my full time job September 2017, I had taken note of a few things:

  1. I am passionate about fashion, health, cosmetics, and how they influence society
  2. I crave adventure and spontaneity (especially in the form of travel)
  3. I want to make an impact that is larger than myself

In October 2019, I took a trip to Fiji for the first time. The trip, and my thoughts and feelings about where I am at in my life, made me realize that I truly want more for myself, despite my reservations and hesitations. I met some amazing people along the way who have helped re-spark my ambition and drive for getting to my next step, whatever it may be. Will it be difficult? Probably. Will it be worth it? Absolutely. I just know that I cannot let the fear of failing continue to stop me from pursuing my dreams. I cannot let other’s voices and opinions cloud my own. I want to be able to wake up every day, and genuinely love what I do. Life is too short to be anything other than happy. I am 26 years young, and I am ready to start the next chapter of my life.

After months of planning, researching, and hard work, I bring you this website! It is my labor of love, my creative outlet, and a project that I am so humbled by. My content consists of personal blog posts categorized by fashion, beauty, travel, and lifestyle. I also created a Shop link that is a collection of my favorite pieces from my favorite brands. Additionally, I have a rotating Topics list to highlight pieces of my life that fuel my passions and well being. Thank you for tuning in and look forward to following along in my journey!

XOXO,

NK
