innerduce is a sanctuary and rest stop for anyone on the personal growth and self-actualization journey. It’s centered around deep self-reflection, exploratory questioning, and inner care. This is an honest and healing space for dialogue, community, and support for the inner work as you unlearn, rediscover, redefine, and reconnect with the self to navigate joy, love, and purpose.
I would write this in third person, but It's me, I'm writing my own bio. [cue music] Allow me to re-innerduce myself. My name is… Aminat [mic drop]. I infiltrated this digital world with thathonestything, a personal commitment turned public challenge to speak and accept truth in all its forms. It was a beautiful 10-year journey that led me here, to innerduce. I realized that everything is rooted in self-love and self-healing—and that to get there, we all have to commit to doing the inner work. With truth as the propeller and after countless interviews, wondering, and wandering, inner care and the need for it became undoubtedly clear. I allowed myself to transition and enter this new chapter. So now, I’m an expert in unpacking and a tourist guide for the inner journey.
My educational background helped solidify the creation and intention of innerduce. I earned my master's in psychology and bachelor's in health sciences with a concentration in women's studies. I’m a continuous learner though so I'm always touching up on positive and humanistic psychology. One of my favorite areas of study is in self-affirmations, in fact, that was my chosen capstone project in grad school—self-affirmations are powerful in case you doubted them, side note.
Traveling, especially solo-travel, is one of my most favorite things. I truly enjoy being the ‘new kid’ and learning foreign languages and customs. I feel that a lot of beauty exists exactly where we are, but if given the opportunity to travel, we get to see just how multifaceted beauty is. It is humbling to have acquired so much knowledge, then visit somewhere new and have to learn so much more. I believe travel, near, nearest, and far, helps us gain understanding, makes us better humans, and fosters connectedness. Another thing I love is cooking primarily because I love eating and can make almost anything even if I tried it elsewhere only once [slight brag, slight brag]. I’m drawn to nature, especially water, I love solitude [too much], and poetry. I enjoy being happy and giving when I can. As a human being on this earth, I do my best to honor God and my purpose so that I can bring my inner light to the world around me. I think it's what we're all here for.
I'm not sure how to end this, so this is me awkwardly exiting. If you have questions or want to know more about me, get in touch via email [I read all of them and love connecting, seriously] or check below for the gram.
With hella love,
