Hey, there! Welcome to BooksandBigHair!
I’m India! A 26-year-old, Southern Belle who came back down south after living in NYC and working in HBO. I’m a Social Media Editor and a writer. I LOVE to write – I’m agented and am working on a couple of fiction projects. I’m a Freelance Writer as well – my words have been in Teen Vogue, Essence, Sesi Mag, and The Everygirl.
I’m engaged! My boyfriend of 8 years proposed October 27, 2017 in a park overlooking the Manhattan Skyline. You can read more about the wedding planning by clicking on the wedding tab of this blog.
I LOVE to read, and I love talking about what I’ve read on my YouTube channel, where I have 5k subscribers!
My hair is thick, wild, and almost untameable, which I love. I was featured in Seventeen Magazine for it in 2013! I chopped off all of my chemically straightened hair that same year to grow my kinks and curls back the healthy way. I’ll NEVER chemically straighten my hair again.
About the Blog:
BooksandBigHair came from my BookTube, (or Book-Related YouTube) Channel. I felt it was the perfect representation of me! I (obviously) have big hair, I love to read, and I’m currently writing my own books. Most posts will probably be writing related, but expect posts on other aspects of my life as well!
I’m a Christian, and Jesus is the center of my life! Matthew 5:16 is my favorite Bible verse. I love the idea that we can be a light to the World, and I am passionate about doing so through my writing.
Beyoncé is my favorite artist of all time. I’ve written so many articles explaining why.
I’ll take an Iced Chai Latte, a bag of Flamin’ Hot Fries, or a bowl of pasta anyway of week (though, maybe not all at once.)
So, kick your feet up, grab a cup of tea, and enjoy the blog! I hope I inspire you to follow your dreams, write that book, take that chance, or at the very least, recommend you a good book to read!
