My Story: Briyana Monique



Hey bloggers, My name is Briyana Nichols. My friends call me Briy or B. I am a proud Winston-Salem State RAM.. and yes I LOVE MY HBCU! I am Double majoring in Biology and Marketing. I plan to become a Biomedical Engineer. I recently turned 19 years young. In my new year of life my focus is ME! Finding my God given purpose and striving for my goals. Most importantly building my relationship with God. My life has been somewhat of a challenge but I continue to press forward.  One of the biggest challenges I face is my Type 1 Diabetes. I was diagnosed with this “disability” at the age of 10. This is why one of my main focuses will be “Eat Clean, Train Dirty” because health is a main aspect of my life ( as it should be in anyones life ).

Recently I came to realize that I tend to put the well-being of others before my well-being, forgetting that I am human as well. I allow all these feelings and emotions to build up and I always wait until i hit my breaking point to be heard…. well that time period is over and done with. I wanted to come up with a way to positively express my feelings while helping others who are just like me ( sometime overwhelmed with life)  to get through those hard days. While helping others little do you know you’re helping me!

This blog is like my baby, something that solely belongs to me and is my outlet. Although R.A.W is mainly directed toward women and girls, I want to Encourage, Empower, and Uplift all my followers. With R.A.W I want bloggers to converse with me about their opinions and and problems. You can get in touch with me on twitter : @1st__LadyB or by e-mail :

Enjoy R.A.W
