About

Hello!

My name is Akua and my dream is to leave my community better than I found it.

I’m not a woman living in a city like NYC or LA where there’s ample resources to live out a sustainable lifestyle. I’m living in the Midwest. Minnesota to be exact. Where it’s winter six months out of the year but where the people don’t let the chilly weather keep them down. These are some of the most outdoorsy people I’ve ever met.

This blog is a place where you will gain insight into my adventures and hiccups of this new journey to a fuller life. My hope is to provide a unique perspective. Each post is a little adventure. A little insight into my journey blending elements of minimalism, zero-waste and eco-friendly living.

A sense of my life in a snap shot

I was born and raised in Florida but currently a Minnesota transplant, loving the Twin Cities although I miss the 24/7 sun. I grew up in a big family surrounded by love.

I found my activist spirit and calling as a public servant in undergrad. I enjoyed undergrad so much, I’m back at it again at graduate school. I’m married to my best friend. My life is constantly changing but those are the good stuff.

Keep flourishing people and live consciously..
