The real Nwanyi Ocha!

300Welcome to my blog: The Igbo - Swiss family life

I have been hiding behind my "artist name" for way too long. It is time to step up and introduce the real Nwanyi Ocha. For all of you who have been following me on social media over the years and wondering who I really am, this blog will reveal more of who I really am. And for those that have never heard of me before, welcome to my world!

The family perspective

My mother says I am an allrounder and a multi-tasker. My father describes me as someone that never stops talking and whose mouth would have to be killed separately the day I die. My brother once told me that I am a 100% person - that anything I do, I do it with 100% passion, energy, and commitment. I guess my children would say that I am too strict and spend too much time cleaning and my husband keeps on telling me that I am his soulmate.

The outside perspective

Most of my followers appreciate my interest in the Igbo language and culture. Many have said that I have a good sense of humor and that I am skilled in writing. I have a talent to notice small differences and point out the obvious and never shy to also laugh about myself. Some critics think that I have lost my own identity and that I am too Igbo-focused (I will answer that in a different blog post).

How I see myself

I guess I am a bit of everything. I do not have a plan for everything but rather embrace whatever comes my way. I am passionate about what I do and try to always keep an open mind. I am outgoing and at the same time shy. I get scared when being introduced to new people but enjoy being the center of attention around friends and family. I try to be a good wife and mother without losing myself and believe that everything in life happens for a reason.

Why a blog for Nwanyi Ocha

I have been active on social media for several years. From Facebook to Instagram and Twitter, my followers have grown beyond anything I could have ever imagined and I have felt very comfortable hiding behind my "stage name" Nwayni Ocha. While I have become well known in Ala Igbo and often recognized on the streets, nobody (except close friends and family) in Switzerland knew that I have a second identity on the Internet. But with the launch of my first children's book "Ala Nnam", I felt it was time to reveal my true self because I am proud to say that this is MY BOOK that I wrote and edited all by myself :-)

So what can you expect?

Well, as I said, I do not like to plan things. I am starting this blog to have more ways to express myself. You will read about my life, my family, my art, my book, and my passions. I might share my favorite recipe or tell you about the challenges of making a multi-cultural marriage work. But most importantly, I will have a platform to write and express in more detail what I used to have to summarize in a few words for social media (as people do not really read beyond the titles on the net). I do not know where this journey takes us, but I am excited to start a new chapter!

And what can you do?

I invite you to not only read but actively engage on my page. Leave a comment if there is a topic you want me to write about, a question you have always wanted to ask me, or something you feel I should know. Check out my books
