Eyek Ntekim 

Writer + Content Creator

Hello and welcome to my blog! AfrikanRising is a place where I (Eyek) discuss (complete) health, beauty, and social justice. As a twentysomething year old Nigerian, I'm sharing my stories, from my struggles with self acceptance, to my favorite skincare products.

 I created this blog because I want you to feel something, whether that's joy, sadness or a desire to self-reflect. I'm learning and growing everyday and I want you to learn and grow with me. Join me on this journey and watch this African rise.

Pick Of The Week

Pick Of The Week

So here is my first "Pick of the Week". As I said in my Welcome Video, I will be selecting any given food or recipe, song that I like to workout to, or fitness gear or gadget that I am loving during that week. This week, I loved my simple smoothie which as I said, I didn't make too often anymore because I didn't really like them until now. Check out the recipe below:


1/2 cup Coconut Water

Handful of Spinach

One sliced banana

1 cup of frozen mixed berries

Try it out and let me know what you think! Until next week.
