More About the Writer, Elizabeth

Elizabeth Ghekiere of Jihi Elephant


First off, my name is Elizabeth. I  graduated with my Bachelors in Arts, majoring in psychology, in November 2016, and am currently working towards a Master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling.

I have just been accepted into my preferred graduate program and am preparing to make the move! In the meantime, I am working as a direct care worker on the midnight and afternoon shift. As well as Managing a waterside ice cream trailer. Because of my hours, I have way more free time than I am used to.

I had been looking into and researching starting a blog for months but was too nervous to actually do one, wanting my focus to be on graduating. Finally, after being graduated for over a month and having been working for a few weeks I decided to go for it! The next day I bought my domain and jumped right in! Thus, the birth of Jihi Elephant!
