Why Happy Soul? My last name Shadijanova literally translates to Happy Soul in Persian. The ova bit in the middle is just my surname Russified.

My name is Diyora and I’m  a 21 year old History of Art finalist at the University of Warwick and an aspiring journalist. I love reading, writing, watching crap telly and the company of my friends and family. I’m a simple human with lots of opinions.


This is a personal blog, that I write every so often. All opinions and images are my own unless stated otherwise.

    Hey Diyora, Congrats! Well Done)))
    You’ve told that you are interested in ancient history, which this is my adorable subject! My question is what part of the History are you interested?
