Hello beautiful people and welcome to my blog!
My name is Dami Fawehinmi, however I go by Journals Of Dami or J.O.D for anything creative I do. Here’s some random facts about me 🙂
- I’m 19 years old
- Favourite food is carbonara (Vapiano’s specifically)
- I am a booktuber!!
- I am also a photographer and founder of The VEL revolution!
I was driving in my car on the way back from the shops when I was planning the new journey for my blog, but first I needed a name. I wanted it to be personal and unique. I think best when I’m driving so I decided to go for a couple more miles. Eventually I just wanted it to be simple, I combined my favourite thing (journals) with my name…very simple I know I know!
Yet, it means a lot to me, it was the first chapter and also an ode to my childhood, where I grew up just wanting to be an artist, I wanted to always create something and back then I didn’t know what a blogger was, I didn’t even know it existed. As I got older so many more opportunities came my way, I tested the waters of the creative industries and knew what I loved, I knew what I wanted to develop my skills in.
Such as when I received my first disposable camera or set up my first blog and wrote my first blog post. These were the stepping stones that got me to where I am today and laid the foundations for Journals Of Dami to even exist. I am so grateful for what’s lead to this, the wonderful people I’ve met, lessons I’ve learnt, environments I’ve grown in. It all helped me to develop as person. I cannot wait to see what else is in store for us all💖💖💖
