Hi there. My name is Winnie Nantongo and I am a Ugandan Personal development blogger, lifestyle entrepreneur, motivational speaker, digital influencer, social activist & decided optimist dedicated to assisting you develop your minds and hearts.
Through my blog, podcast show and different social media channels, I’m satisfied to have created a socially awake digital empire that has touched thousands of souls. All I do with my life is to assist people like you to unleash your greatness and discover your power.
However, I started out as a novice at one of Uganda’s leading entertainment blogs at the time called 411 UG then later contributed to different entertainment websites along the way before I started my own personal development blog due to the desire to assist people develop their minds and hearts.
How I Started
I believe in self improvement. I believe that the world can be a much better place if we focus on becoming a person of value so that we can share that value with others. Bringing value to the rest of the world has always been my dream since I was so little.
I remember being eleven years of age in my Primary six when the realization did hit me. I didn’t know how I could be useful at the moment but my love for story telling compelled me to start a social media account in my senior two where I could share those short inspiring stories and this later introduced me to blogging though at the time, I started with writing for different entertainment blogs since it was the first available opportunity for a bigger audience.
However, I started my social media presence back in 2012 on Facebook with a sole intention to just have that one easy location online where I could share short inspiring messages. Little did I know that this simple gesture got many people interested thus compelled me to do something bigger than just posting on Facebook. And that is exactly how the idea of a personal development blog came to mind.
Today, my self improvement articles have featured on several different blogs including MTN Uganda’s MTN Pulse blog and I have also been able to scoop a nomination for the Teens favorite blogger/Author in the 2018 Walk of fame teens awards.
