Hey youths, my name is Teenella. I designed this blog to uplift all christian youths out there who are dealing with discrimination, lack of self-confidence, personality problems and other social issues. My blog is also aimed at educating youths socially, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and politically.
I welcome you to a journey into my life, to see how I deal with the obstacles that come my way as well as issues that affect christian youths all over the world.
