Hi, all! I’m Niara (pronounced “ny-air-uh,” not hard. promise!). I’m an alumna of Ohio University with my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science Prelaw, and a Certificate in Law, Justice, and Culture, and will be beginning law school in Ohio in the fall. Outside of academics, I am passionate about social justice, reading good books when I have free time, hiking as much as possible, writing, and photography. This is, in short, a platform for my photography and lifestyle blog. Welcome to my slice of the Internet community! I’m really happy you’re here.
Starting a blog was really pressing on my heart a few years ago, because it pushes me to be creative and also gives me a platform to share my experiences with the world, and I believe words and photographs are the best way to connect to other people – to encourage, love, educate, and inspire them. And that’s all possible if I get to know my readers and audience. So you can get to know me a little better, here are some more of the simple things in life that give me crazy joy: Jesus, camping + backpacking, hot shots of espresso in iced drinks, writing prose, reading long books, hiking + picking flowers as I climb mountains, and being an activist by any means necessary.
I hope you see a photo that inspires you to be more adventurous, or that my words help you grow in whatever season of life you may be in. Let’s be friends.
