I’ll just start by saying:
I’m Imani Brown, the “Around-The-Way-Girl Next Door” (as seen on my Tumblr). I got the nickname “Manito” in high school. It’s slang in Spanish for “little brother” but my friends got it from the song “Hola Hovito” since I’m a huge Jay-Z fan and it just stuck.
I’m a 22 year old New Yorker with the world at my feet and a whole lot of things to say. So many people have been telling me I should start my own blog for years now and here we are! I’ve been on social media for a while but I finally decided to take my talents to WordPress. I recently became a HBCU graduate in May but I’m a current student of the School of Hard Knocks. Life is coming at me pretty fast and I’m not sure if this blog is an escape route out of working 2 jobs or an outlet to keep me sane.
Overall, I’m into music, fashion, sports and a whole catalog of random activities.
I am an avid hip-hop/rap lover, very opinionated, and unapologetic, to say the least. I attend concerts and music festivals a lot in my free time. I also love to shop, despite what my bank account tells me. I’m really into sneakers but I don’t think that makes me a sneakerhead so, don’t quiz me, thanks!
You’ll get to know me more as I get the hang of this.
Not sure if there’s a clever or cute way for introducing myself on a blog but I’m failing at it and it’s 2 AM. Hope I can keep you interested with other posts in relation to hip-hop, fashion, or other likes and dislikes! Feel free to leave a comment. Free your mind, and the rest will follow. You’ll see more soon!
