Marina. Genuinely, that is my name, a slightly unusual one at that and I guess I've been unique and somewhat eccentric ever since my name was established and consequently myself as an individual. Never one to follow the crowd always one to do my own thing. A great believer in that your better to stand alone and for what you believe in than to be surrounded by those who don't.
A lack of direction and meaning has led me here. Recently graduating from my degree and seemingly spending so long in education (only to return to the education system potentially, as my degree is in Childhood Studies). So many people kept suggesting I start a blog, a vlog, a youtube channel, all manner of things and I've brushed it off, swept it under the carpet and repeatedly told each and every one of them: "What do I have to say, that would be worth reading?", "Why would anyone want to read what I have to say?". "No, No, No! its not for me". Today I'm taking the leap of faith into the unknown and putting myself out there. I don't know what to expect, please tread gently and remember this, "its nice, to be nice" .
Here I shall discuss all the things I am passionate about, the things I love and those I care about.
We shall probably take sharp twists and turns in terms of content, from my love of ice cream one moment to the important challenge of solving the world debt, world hunger and understanding the importance of recognising women as equals.
And as my greatest inspiration said herself (please take note that my biggest inspiration is a woman, as I drive for gender equality.and battle against the stereotype, I will not be made to feel inadequate).

Lets see what happens. This could be the start of a whole new chapter, the beginning of a new adventure.
