I go by Aziza, however that is not the name I was blessed with. I will proudly respond to the name on my birth certificate. I’m an only child born and raised in the beautiful state of Utah. I’ve spent the past 7 years working in public service which has allowed me the opportunity to travel. I’m currently living in Japan with my spouse and 2 small children.
This is not the first time I have dipped my toe into the sea that is blogging. Back in 2011, I spent some time in Saudi Arabia. At the time I felt that was a great opportunity to start a blog. It was a great time to start a blog, however, I didn’t have the motivation to keep it going. This time I will be diving, not dipping.
Like most of us, my life has been a meandering path. Yet again, I have found myself in a remarkable situation where starting a blog seems right. I want to use this blog as a platform for not only self-expression but public service. In our day-to-day lives, it can often feel as though we are the only ones experiencing a great trial or joy. I truly believe we are all more connected than we realize. It is my hope that at least one person can find a post or idea in this blog in which they can draw inspiration or reflection.
