About sherinaspeaks

You might be wondering: “Who is Sherina? And why is she speaking?”

These are two very good questions. I am Sherina—a Canadian journalism student and blogger, and I am speaking because I have something to say. This blog is a collection of my thoughts about the world; from issues of inequality and injustice to current world news, happiness, my love of writing, and everything in between.

I started this blog when I was in grade 10. My English teacher explained that our class would be embarking on a semester-long passion project and I immediately thought of creating a blog. It’s funny, because I didn’t even really know what a blog was. My previous writing outlet, the student column of my local newspaper, had just shut down, and I was eager to find a new place to share my writing. So a blog it was, I decided.

It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with blogging. I loved the process of coming up with an idea, writing it and publishing the piece online. Beyond my family and teachers, not many people read my blog at first; but I was okay with that. I just wanted to write. And so I wrote—about the weather, about the world, about anything. When the semester ended, I kept blogging. Over four years later, here I am; still blogging, and still loving it.

If you’ve read some of my blog posts, you’ll know that I look at life with an optimistic perspective. I believe kindness and compassion can change the world for the better. I also believe that words—blog posts, journalism, books—can change the world. Above all, that is why I have continued blogging for all these years after my school project came to an end—and it’s why I plan to continue blogging, and speaking, for many more.

  1. “I am speaking because I have something to say” Wow, it’s been a long time since I have agreed with a single sentence so wholeheartedly… I too came to wordpress to be heard in a world that often doesn’t listen.

    I look forward to reading more of your posts.
