𝘏𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘰 𝘸𝘰𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘧𝘶𝘭 𝘩𝘶𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘴, 𝘧𝘢𝘮𝘪𝘭𝘪𝘢𝘳 𝘧𝘢𝘤𝘦𝘴 & 𝘯𝘦𝘸! I go by 𝐄𝐦, and this platform was once an experimental project I created a little over 2 years ago called 𝐄𝐱𝐩𝐥𝐨𝐑𝐍 (pronounced like 𝘦𝘹𝘱𝘭𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘯’) 𝐄𝐦𝐂𝐡𝐞𝐧𝐠 (my nickname). My vision for this platform is completely different to what it has evolved to today (in the best way!), and I’m v proud and humbled by this lil’ community we got goin’ on! 🤗
In this space, you can expect 𝐡𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐭, 𝐫𝐚𝐰, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐞 conversations across a large spectrum of topics. Everything from self-care, self-love, personal development, my experiences, thoughts, feelings, and truths on nursing, travel nursing, entrepreneurship, being a woman of color, adversity, diversity, inclusion, environmentalism, my love for the outdoors, and recreating in them - just to name a few. We like to talk about the wins as well as the trials and tribulations. The pretty pictures are just as important as the captions underneath them so 𝘐 𝘩𝘰𝘱𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘵𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘱 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘴𝘤𝘳𝘰𝘭𝘭 𝘵𝘰 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘥.
My hope in the crazy world of social media, where we primarily see curated posts and highlight reels, I can bring a breath of fresh air to your feed. I hope that after you consume my content, you are left with a sense of belonging, thought-provoked, curious, empowered, motivated, and loved. This platform is more than me. It’s 𝐮𝐬. It’s 𝐡𝐮𝐦𝐚𝐧 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧, 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐚𝐜𝐲, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐠𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐭𝐡. And I truly hope you do stay awhile and know you are welcomed here. I hope we can build a trusting, loving, and empowered community here.
𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐤 𝐲𝐨𝐮 for choosing to be here; it means more than you will ever know. I’d love to know 𝐰𝐡𝐲 you decided to press that “𝘍𝘰𝘭𝘭𝘰𝘸” button up top. I don’t take it lightly, so again, 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘬 𝘺𝘰𝘶. 𝐋𝐞𝐭 𝐦𝐞 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐲 𝐲𝐨𝐮’𝐯𝐞 𝐝𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐚𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐝 𝐣𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐞𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐚 𝐟𝐮𝐧 𝐟𝐚𝐜𝐭 𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟! I’ll go first - I have an extra cervical vertebrae! 🦴😋
