Meet Michelle Omeno. One of the most energetic characters I have ever crossed paths with! Michelle was the first friend I made when I joined Bookstagram. I remember really admiring her account and direct messaging her for more information about the Kenyan book community. This led to us discussing not only our love for books, but also our shared love for Chris Martin (the dancehall musician, not the Coldplay one). From these timid beginnings, a friendship has developed so much so that we spend good amounts of time laughing about random things even outside of Bookstagram. We constantly do buddy reads of different books and have enjoyable discussions (and at times rants) about these reads.
I asked Michelle three questions to shed more light on her love for books and this is what she had to say:
What do books mean to you on a personal level?
Michelle is a veteran on these Bookstagram streets. You can follow her booksta account for amazing book content. Not only does she take amazing book pics, but her captions are truly meaningful. Many times, her captions are in the form of poetry. You can read more of her poetry on her blog.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know Michelle. Follow her linked socials for more from her!
