My name is Malaika and I am a married mother of two wonderful, boisterous children who have rocked my world!

I am a blend of two cultures (Kenyan-Scottish) and was born and raised in Kenya. I currently live in Canada and am attending medical school.

I enjoy reading, science, nature, piano, song-writing, cooking, calligraphy and crochet. My faith is an important part of who I am.

In life, there is the potential to achieve anything we set our minds to!  I hope to share with you my life experiences and provide motivation to passionately reach out for your goals and dreams!

      1. Hi Malaika! You’re welcome. The merits are yours. About singing, you are right, but I know this only since two years ago. I suffered bullying at work and I began to sing, but a lot years ago I sung with guitar and harmonica. For me the discovery is about the therapeutic benefits of singing. Oh pretty, thanks so much for your reply and best wishes 😉

  3. Hi,
    I know Wilson Gaba, the Lonely Author Blog, and Hugh.
    Thanks for visiting my site yesterday. I am glad you liked my guest author’s post about SEO. I have posts about SEO on my site routinely.
    In response to your post, It sounds like failing the MCAT twice was a good learning experience. My late husband failed his test twice to become a psychology and learned a great deal from that experience.
    Thank you again for yesterday’s visit.

    1. Thank you Janice for your encouraging words and for taking the time to visit my blog. What an inspiring story about your husband! I always love hearing about stories of perseverance and determination! Just wanted to clarify that I didn’t actually fail the MCAT though. I just wanted to improve my score in order to be more competitive in my application. Thanks again for visiting and have an amazing new year!

  4. Hello,

    First of all, your name is Malaika and my name is Malavika. We are literally only missing one letter in our name. Secondly, you live in Canada and so do I. And last, but not least, you are about to start medical school, and I have just graduated. That’s a lot of things in common for two people who have never met or heard of each other till this moment, hey?

    You have a beautiful family, and how wonderful it is that you have had time quality time with your sweet babies.

    I want to wish you the best of luck on your endeavours. Medicine is life changing and I hope you enjoy every moment of it.

    1. Hi Malavika! Thanks so much for reaching out to me! That’s a lot we have in common, indeed! I love your name, it’s so unique! If I can ask, where in Canada are you? You can PM me at thepotentialdoctor@gmail.com if you’d like. I visited your blog and it’s wonderful! I look forward to reading more of your posts. Congratulations on completing medical school. That’s a great achievement and I wish you all the best as you plan for your residency! Keep in touch 🙂


      1. Hi Malaika,
        I’m happy to hear from you.
        My husband and I live in Kitchener, Ontario for the moment. My family are in BC though, so I often go back to visit.

        Ah, I am excited for you to start medical school! Do let me know if there is anyway that I can help you. I have just gotten into my study schedule to prepare for my USMLE’s, as we plan to relocate to the US for residency.

        I’m so glad you enjoyed my blog. I’m glad I found yours too, and will definitely keep in touch!

        Please do consider me a friend :),
