Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I'm Raki, short for Morakana, my name means home (loving, safe and warm) and I believe that's the feeling I give to people. I'm a lover of life, I'm influenced by those close to me and the daily challenges that throws at us.
Why do you write?
I write to inspire lives, to bring change and positivity. I believe I have so much to share with the world.
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I have a passion for writing most importantly for people. I think through my writing I will impact a lot of lives.
What do you love about the blogging world/community?
The blogging community is super supportive. Everyone is just always ready to help out where ever they can.
What do you hate about the blogging world/community?
Honestly, I can't think of one thing I hate about the community. Wait, does those that follow only just to unfollow count? Yes, I hate that they make this community all about numbers. It's discouraging.
In your opinion, who are the most underrated bloggers?
What are some hard truths you have learnt about life?
Not everything will work out as you plan it to.
Not everyone will support you 100% and that is okay. They will catch you on the way.
What does freedom mean to you?
Freedom means being able to do anything and everything without boundaries.
What are your thoughts on mental health and how it's portrayed in today's society?
I love how we are do aware of mental health issues. We have created so much awareness towards it and it's no longer a norm.
What are your thoughts on feminism and how it's portrayed in today's society?
I am all for feminism. Standing up for women and creating unity amongst us. What I dislike is how some women portray it for something it's not.
What are your thoughts on 'Love is Love' and how it's portrayed in today's society?
Yes, it is true Love is Love it doesn't matter the race, sexual orientation, gender or even religion. I believe that as long as a person is completely happy. That's all that matters, the happiness of the next person.
What advice would you give to someone who is fighting a mental illness?
Take it easy, give yourself enough time, do things you love and learn to fall in love with yourself. Practice enough self-care.
What advice would you give to someone who is being bullied or harassed?
You are more courageous than you think. Talk to someone about it. Report the person. Speak up.
If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?
What else do you feel strongly about?
Self-care, I write so much about it because it is important in rediscovering yourself and your purpose.
Let's end this with some fun 'This or That' questions:
Love or money?
Love, being loved right is the most amazing feeling.
Work hard or play hard?
Definitely work hard.
Cups in the cupboard: right side up or upside down?
Chocolate or sex?
I don't eat chocolate, or anything sweet. So sex it is.
Plan everything or wing it?
I honestly plan everything, but I've been in situations where my planning just goes downhill so sometimes I just wing it.
Happiness or money?
Money, if I have enough money I'd be very happy.
