When you write your About page, your job as a blogger is to DAZZLE your audience but I wrote this because I was bored and didn’t have any inspiration for a poem. So let’s see what my About page looked like at the end of the day…

Hi, I am Oyekanmi Ruqayya Dolapo, and I was a flamboyantly and irreverently expressive 400L Law student in Nigeria by the time I wrote this.

As a poet and occasional prosaist, I sincerely believe that my work is unique.

This treasure that you have found entails an account of my adventures, my battle with depression and anxiety, my knowledge about a myriad of things; and the essence of my work is carried in my voice. I started Smallee Writes in May, 2016 and since then I have fallen more in love with it and myself. I cover both the good and the bad here because life isn’t one long holiday (although I wish it was!) so we have to deal with everything it throws at us.

Together we’re a winning team and I’m your personal cheerleader educating you, helping you get over the pain and live life to the fullest.

More Random Facts About Me

  • By the time I wrote this, I weighed 46kg. I don’t think much has changed since then.
  • When I started my blog, I wished I had done it anonymously so I could really say what I wanted to say. Now I’m glad I didn’t, because I can actually say what I want to say, and stand behind it, too.
  • I can be incredibly nosy and I am convinced you’re way more interesting than me.
  • I’d (still!) like to write a book one day.
  • I am the smallest person in my family.
  • My nose has no cartilage in the end, this means it can be pressed right down onto my face.
  • I wish I went to art school.
  • I stay up too late almost every night and regret it every morning (I wrote this at 4:52 am)
  • If I had one wish right now, it would be to be able to sing really well.
  • I can only write with my notebook or my entire body turned sideways.
  • I am very, very neat. Except when I am not.
  • I laugh at really dumb jokes.
  • I think vanilla flavored ice cream is goated. Chocolate, on the other hand, is trash.
