If you are a lover of learning, travelling, passionate or curious about different cultures and my beautiful African continent, which I take so much pride in and love so much, then perchance this blog is for you…I am very grateful to be raised in a traditional home that celebrated and embraced our traditions and customs and also allowed us to walk our own journey. The day I stepped out on my own journey to wholeheartedly embrace all that is African, I realized how much we, as a people, have lost our identity. I began to consume all that I could get my hands on about our ancient civilizations and customs but soon realized that I am surrounded by what I am searching for…let me slow down and simply go back to my upbringing and into my own backyard to learn from current life experiences and listen to the wisdom of my elders. To study our rich past and struggles and how we eventually got here. You see someone from outside seeing Africa in their own eyes and writing about us from their own perceptions, misconceptions and stereotypes has always disturbed me a little, because to me, most of these writings were not of the Africa I know and live.Through my journey and experiences I will be sharing in this blog, you will get to see and know Africa from an African.
