So, a few weeks ago, I was having a conversation with a friend about the blog and he suggests that I write stories about growing up in an African household. I returned the challenge to him, asking him to write a story with the same subject. Then, I reached out to other people in my network, asking them to share their own stories. All of their stories were reflective, funny, sad, positive, and everything in between. I can’t wait to share their stories with you.
About this African Girl
In West Philadelphia, born and raised...ah, wrong story. Mine starts in Lome...in Togo...in West Africa...look it up. Then, 13 years later, flipped, turned upside down and I'm in the U.S, learning to live between worlds. For more of this story, check out my "About" Page.
