Hello, I’m Mahmoudat a 21 year Accounting and Finance Student at LSE based in London. Born and raised in Nigeria, the blog is the public extension of myself – home to my thoughts turned words and reflections on politics, religion, literature and social issues. Muslimgirljournal is simply a space where I document my continued journey towards self development and growth.
Behind the name: Being Muslim is arguably the most important part of my identity and it has an influence on all strands of my life. Writing has been a long term interest for me and keeping a journal/ diary has been an integral part of my life over the past 5 years. I am constantly learning and growing through this medium so I want the blog to be a space where I document reflections on various issues and showcase lessons from my journey. So look out for the monthly journals!
