I know that sounds crazy, right? I mean, what the hell kind of name is Sealnation? I’ve been getting that question since the day I created my Snapchat account and to be honest with you, I just really liked the word seal when I was 16 so I incorporated it into my unchangeable Snapchat username. From there, it sort of just became an inside joke with my friends and eventually, I would go on to use that username on all social media platforms. Nowadays, I have people call me seal, sealie, sealnation, basically anything but my real name IRL. But hey, I’m not mad at it – thanks for the free branding!
Now, this is a lot of pressure. Creating a blog, I mean.
For starters, I made this blog because I wanted an outlet where I could write about everything and anything while maintaining some authenticity. There’s nothing worse than coming across a blog that’s too perfect with cut and paste, cookie cutter posts. When you come to my blog, I want it to feel like you’re looking to a homie for advice. But how do I make myself stand out and how do I let my personality shine through so my readers enjoy it. I mean, do I type how I text? Because I text realllllly annoyinggggly and I honestly just use a looot of emojiss.
Yea, I think I’ll pass on that.
Biographically speaking, I live in Ottawa, so you’ll probably see a lot of reference to that as I was born and raised here. That said, my roots tie back to El Salvador, a country I’m extremely proud to have heritage from – 503 forever baby! I’m also half Guinean but since I grew up with just my mom’s side of the family, I don’t know much about that culture.
And just to throw this in here, I absolutely adore Kim Kardashian and I’ll for real fight you over this; don’t ask me why! She’s just total influencer, boss bitch, businesswoman vibes. I’m also die hard #BardiGang, I love carbs, and all things sugary, and I won’t ever deny this.
Anyway, there’s a lot I could say about myself and how I view the world but in the meantime, I’ll just let you piece together your very own image of me through my posts.
If I could describe myself accurately, it’d probably be: sealnation vs. the world. How cliché.
