Hi. My name is…

Ifeoma “Ify” Halim.

#4: I tend to see things differently

#5: I want to make the world a better place

#6: Apparently, I’m an idealist

#7: My so-called idealism may have something to do with my walk with God

#8: My idealist self plans to share a lot of her thoughts and work here

… And hopes you’ll visit once in a while to see what she’s up to *big grin*

That’s it really….

Enough about me, what’s your name? (:
