EXCUSE MY AFRICAN


Ooops!
I did it again.

So I forgot to tell you all that I was approached by TEAKISI.COM to write an article for them. You can actually check out my profile on the website.


The great news is that my first article has just been published and I am already receiving messages, questions and meeting requests because of it.
I wanted to share it with you, so that my dear supportive and loyal readers will not be left out.
 

It's called EXCUSE MY AFRICAN.
 

As an African girl who lives abroad, I have had a lot of experiences that made me realize that life is not what it seems. I actually thought that it would be easy for me to introduce myself as an African and it will be understood and accepted. Little did I know that to the foreigners, there is only one type of African and unfortunately, I am not that.

BEADS AND BRAIDS

"In the spirit of the celebration of women, I want you to meet an amazing and inspiring AFRICAN woman Nneka. She contacted me and was wondering if I would profile her project. When she sent it to me I was blown away and reminded of the fact that no one can fully understand the beauty, strength and magic of the BLACK GIRL
ENJOY this article and the vibrant pictures"- Stella Damasus

TO PROTECT AND SERVE

 I was watching an episode of my favorite television series LAW AND ORDER (SVU) one evening and it took my mind to a million places. The episode was about a mentally unstable man who decided to start killing cops. Some police officers watched their partners get shot in the head right in front of their eyes and couldn't do anything about it. They couldn't even find the shooter, which made some of them decide to quit. According to one of them "I would rather be a coward on the beach in Florida than become a dead cop".
The part that really struck me was the speech given to the officers in their precinct by their lieutenant, telling them that even though many people hate cops, and want them dead, they should never forget that their job is to protect and serve these same people. The speech ended with "please try and come back alive".

GET OVER IT!

I was reading a magazine recently and stumbled on a story that caught my attention.
People who know me very well can tell you that when there is something about women and children, my interest is always heightened. 

So, there I was reading about a protest that was organized by parents of a middle school here in America. This protest was born out of the complaints of the students who felt their rights were being violated, and the school authorities did not care too much about them.
This got me charged up already because I do not tolerate injustice especially when children are involved. I continued to read this article only to find out that the problem was with the kind of food and drinks they were serving them.

WOMAN, I CHALLENGE YOU!

I sat down in my living room flipping through pages of a big history book just to make myself feel a little more intelligent. People who know me have come to realize that I love to read, not just to get information but also to expose my mind.
 

Anyway back to the history book I was reading.
I got to a chapter that said "TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE ON THE AMAZON QUEEN MYTHOLOGY". Trust that I took the test believing that I could at least score up to 50%. To my greatest shock I didn't even score up to 30% percent. There were too many names, stories and history that I  did not know of. 

So, I decided to read the full chapter and found the story to be extremely interesting. This may not be a big deal to some people but it is a big deal for me to know these stories, whether real or mythical. 
Let me share a little bit of what I discovered and I hope you will find it interesting.
