  • Hope changes you

    Christmas is my favourite time of the year. Growing up, we focused on activities that became traditions leading up to, and for the duration of, the festive period.

  • I’m not okay (pt. 2)

    Hello, November! It may seem strange to you, but I cannot believe that we’ve found ourselves this close to celebrating my favourite time of the year, Christmas.

  • The Crystelda Naidoo Story

    What do you want to be when you grow up? When I was younger, I probably would have given you any possible combination of; Power Ranger, veterinarian, race car driver or adventurer. Now that I’m older, you may assume my answer would change to something more seasoned. But I’m here to tell you that the tone of my dreams hasn’t changed a bit.

  • I’m not okay.

    Is anyone over 2020 already? You probably didn’t notice me jump to my feet and throw my fist into the air. The year has been riddled with twists and turns, changes that happen faster than we can blink.

    How many times have you thought that life could have been easier?

  • I have a confession!

    Raise your hand if 2020 has already been a rough year! If that’s you, then you’re not alone. I stand firmly planted and eagerly awaiting the Christmas holiday again, because this year has been way too long.

  • The waiting room

    I’ve always been unsettled by hospitals. As a biological science student and an avid watcher of House MD, hospitals leave me unsettled to say the least
