I feel so happy.

I’ve had many successes and I can honestly say that it’s great to be where I am now and embrace being unique (myself). I don’t think I ever felt like it was as easy to be me but now it’s effortless and it’s good to be Ayesha Karim now. Being me was always good but it took time for me to see and say yeah “I’m Ayesha Karim. I’m a black girl.” I felt like I was kind of used to watching and seeing other people do cool things and have successes way before I ever had successes of my own. I love being me in my 30s. I’ll be 38 next week and here I am. Having success in my 30s feels really good. I feel like this is my best decade ever. There’s nothing I’d really change or do differently. Life is sweet as a ripe strawberry!
