about me

So this should be interesting. I have never been a fan of writing much, but working from home has me wanting to give this a go more, and more each day so here goes – lets see where this leads.

Who am I? Can anyone really definitively answer this questions in words? I think that who I am changes so often, and I can never really say I am…or this is who I am. The only way I know how to put it in writing is to say, I am Nyandia Kamawe, a Woman (I wear this like a badge of honor).

Maybe this would be a good time to mention that I even have a tattoo that says WOMAN in japanese and you can see it here (my tattoo). I got it done not too long ago at City of Ink in Atlanta which is where I live. So there is another about me detail!

So, in addition to being a woman, I am a daughter of two very strong, interesting, beautiful, Kenyan parents who have steered me to be who I am. I am a sister to another strong, beautiful, African woman, and two wonderful, handsome, strong, protective brothers. For my family I will lay my life down. (Not to sound dramatic or anything, but, I will, go hard for this bunch right here, and I live life everyday without a doubt that they have my back, and when I am weak and have no back they are my back.)

Hmmmm….I think I am starting to sound interesting to myself who knew! Lol!

I am an artist by profession with a bachelor of fine arts degree in graphic design from Art Institute of Atlanta.  This might be the moment I should say that I miss school! Never thought I would ever say that but…I do.

I currently own my graphic design company that I run from home, I volunteer and teach a hand made greeting cards class once a week at a Fulton county senior center, and I also mentor young girls from 9-17rs old through an organization called Elect Ladies. I also recently started a clothing line (thirty3sevenTee6 – which represents my birthday. I know, I know, how vain is that but hey, a good thing happened that day, I was born!!) that is in development but we started with t-shirts and it will become a full line in the course of the next few months.

OMG! I am going on, and on about me, but I guess that is the purpose of this excercise but I think this will suffice for now! Ciao see you on my blog pages!

  4. Hi Nyandia,

    Just love everything about you. I admire your work I am into fashion and clothing. I read that you mentor young girls. Do you mentor people who would like to start their own clothing line, because that’s what I want to do. Based in the London, England, just like you would like something that incorporates our Kenyan culture (I am a Kenyan!). Would love to here from you. Keep up the good work. Jane
