My name is Debora Manusama-Sinaga, a wife and mom who was born at the end of the 80s era into a family of Dutch-descent Ambonese musicians and preachers. Previously based in Jakarta, Indonesia, I am now residing in Dallas, Texas.
I studied Communication in Sydney (2007) and a little bit of Film History & Screenwriting in New York (2011). Having been doing it since I was 17, blogging is something therapeutic, inspiring, and almost sacred to me.
THE NAME 'MOZDEB'
It's just something that I made up when I was asked to start a blog in one of my classes back in college. I liked the word "mozzarella", so I used it as my username.
There's nothing deep or philosophical about it. Over the years, the name got stuck and I have shortened it up to 'moz' and merged it with my first name Deb. I use it for this blog, my instagram, pinterest, etc. It's easier you know :)
THE CONTENT OF THIS BLOG
I started blogging in 2008, but I changed the name of my blog and the whole concept of this one in 2013. However, I went on a little hiatus and didn't start getting serious about it until summer of 2015.
I do not intend to blog like I know everything about life and that I have this amazing life you'd wish you had. Because I don't. I am just as clueless about a lot of things as many of you are, and I just want to learn more and share what I've learned with you all.
So consider this blog as a curated journal where you can find things like : everyday life-learned lessons, stories of inspiring women, family-friendly + cool places + events in DFW and many more!
