I laugh out loud when people try to figure out where i am from on uptrennd. For some reasons, they find it hard to believe i am from where i am from but the fact is i am proud of my nationality and it is one thing i can never hide.
Who am i?
I am a Nigerian. Is that surprising? I hope not. I am from Delta State, a state located in the southern part of Nigeria. I am pretty sure everyone knows Nigeria is in Africa but if you do not know, well now you do. I am the eldest child of a family of 6 with an only brother and two beautiful sisters. I am a graduate of biochemistry but pursuing another degree in guidance and counselling in pursuance of my dream of being a certified relationship counsellor. I own a relationship blog on Instagram efficiently managed by @folajimi with 2000 followers and counting
What else? I am not much of a talker. I love my own space as much as possible. On social media i may come off as loud and boisterous but when you meet me, you will wonder if this is the same bubbly person you knew online..lol.
A lot of people know me by different nicknames. A friend once gave me the name "Cleopatra" because he claimed i have great seductive skill like the legendary cleopatra. Only a few came to know me by that name. While in school, i was given a lot of names but then i know it was their way of taunting me because they find it hard to pronounce my name. My name is Orezimena. It is an isoko name and it means "This is the one my heart or spirit desires".
How did i come about Zizy?
This is a story i love to tell. This name was given to me by someone i love so much. We used to be best of friends. A day hardly went by without us spending quality time together. He wasn't comfortable calling me what everyone else calls me and so from Orezimena, he coined out the name "Zizy" using the "Zi" in the name and adding "zy". I loved it and soon everyone was calling me Zizy.
Did we end up together?
No, we never became more than friends because my charms weren't enough to get him to break off his engagement with his fiancee 😂😂. On a serious note, he is such a noble man.
I tried registering on instagram and unfortunately, the name "Zizy" wasn't available and so i borrowed the "mena" from my name and so instead of Orezimena, i am called Zizymena.
