Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and my blog.

A little about me…

My name is Rukevwe Otive-Igbuzor, but most people call me Rukky. I am a 23-year-old writer, singer, YouTuber, development worker, and soon-to-be lawyer. I graduated from University College London (UCL) in 2020 and from the Nigerian Law School in 2022. I am currently enrolled in a Master’s Programme in Human Rights Policy and Practice at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. My interests lie in social justice and development, feminism and human rights, and the philosophical foundations of law. Outside of the academic world, I enjoy writing (both formal and creative), singing, and making videos.

You can connect with me on social media (LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) or via Email.

About this blog

I started this blog in 2013 with some random posts but I eventually deleted them and set my blog to private. However, the lockdown-induced boredom encouraged me to start blogging again (shout out to COVID-19). You might be wondering why I decided to use ‘Kiki’ as my blog name. Frankly, it was initially a pseudonym. I did not tell any of my friends or family members that I had started blogging. I wanted to be able to express my opinions freely without worrying about what people would think (this post in particular made me feel quite vulnerable). So I adopted Kiki (from the second syllable of Rukky) as my blog name.

But eventually I decided to be brave and accept that not everyone might like or agree with my opinion. What I aim to do is raise awareness and start a conversation around some issues that are important to me, so if you see anything that you disagree with, please message me and we can have a chat about it. I would love to hear your views!

There are four main categories in this blog: Lifestyle, Music, Poetry, and Feminism. Under Lifestyle, I write about things I have learned from my experiences, or things I think will benefit others. Under Music, I share songs created by me and others, including the message behind the song lyrics. Under Poetry, I express my thoughts about various issues ranging from creative writing to cooking. Under Feminism, I write about issues concerning women’s rights. I hope you enjoy what you see!
