About

HELLO,

Welcome to my corner of the internet!

My name is Afoma. I’m a twenty-something writer, editor, and voracious reader with an insatiable appetite for children’s literature, books by women, and articles about life and human relationships. In addition to my love affair with words, I dabble in photography, and also happen to have completed medical school.

Afoma Umesi, the website, has evolved over the years. It began as an online diary — as all blogs were, circa 2012 — and became fertile soil for my writing skills to bloom.

Now, it is most of all, my online home where I share all the things I find beautiful — books, links, resources for freelancers (I officially started freelance writing/editing in 2018, hire me!), and thoughts about life.

I’m so glad you found your way here. Stay a while, will you?

I’m happy to chat all things writing, editing, and blog-related at hello@afomaumesi.com.
