I started writing with the intention of becoming better at understanding my own thoughts and learning how to communicate them in ways others can relate.
I wrote my first essay as a way to share with my friends about the domestic violence and abuse I had experienced from a mutual friend. I was so uncomfortable talking about it, so I wrote the essay in using a metaphor from a machine learning concept and related it to a very vulnerable part of my life. Sharing that essay helped me to overcome the embarrassment I felt of being a victim of that situation. Since then, I’ve felt the impact of my writing and been able to offer my support to others in similar situations to my past.
I hope to continue writing impactful pieces here. My goal is to publish essays that dive into my recent curiosities, at least once per month.

Over the years, I've had to move from Revue to Substack to Ghost due to various services shutting down. I now host all my content on ayirprah.com.
