I’d love to tell you more about myself and why I started this blog.
My name is Elizabeth Fovi Quarshie. I live in Ghana, specifically, Kumasi. Most of my friends and family call me Lizzie, for short, and I get Liz from some few individuals, once in a while, which is equally cool🤗😚.
Currently, I am a medical student at the School of Medicine and Dentistry, KNUST, and a proud alumnus of it’s daughter institution, KNUST Senior High School. I love reading and I have the intention of writing novels some day.
What inspired the creation of Lizzie’s Journal?:
I just woke up one day and got tired of not living up to my truest potential. And I got this fiercely aggressive feeling, of wanting to try something new, even if I was not sure how it was going to turn out, even if it meant going the extra mile (because trust me, being in medical school is a whole different vibe—you don’t even want to hear about it).
What to expect from Lizzie’s Journal:
Mostly creative and imaginative fiction. Once in a while, you can expect to see some nonfiction, personal experiences, essays, articles, random musings and some poetry. But most of all, the important thing is that there’ll never be a writing devoid of a subtle message.
I consider myself a storyteller. I like stories. I like to tell them and I like to listen to them as well. I believe that stories matter. I believe in the power of the message behind a well crafted story. I believe that stories can change the world, in the way we think of its complexities and nuances. And that’s what I would be using this platform for. I also have an overwhelming interest in things concerning Africa and the upliftment of women.
So why don’t you jump on board with me by following Lizzie’s Journal or subscribing via email in order to get updates whenever I upload new content. You never know, maybe one day I just might tell your story….🤗.
