Hey Sara, nice to meet you. Well beauty is a really broad topic lol. I don’t have a definite definition of beauty but the older I get, the more i recognize different kinds of beauty. When they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it’s definitely true because beauty can be found in so many different Way. While I was growing up i did favor smaller facial features because that was the standard of beauty that people within my culture set. for example, small/fine nose, full lips, bright eyes, and long hair And a lot of people within in my culture favored lighter skin individuals but it wasn’t that important as long as your face fit the standard. Having really white teeth and dark gums is also considered beautiful.. I still do believe that those characteristics are beautiful but now that I am older i am aware that that’s not the only kind of beauty. The reason why I mentioned my culture and not my country Is because each culture might have different preferences and different ideas and I would be generalizing too much if I spoke for all the ethnic groups in my country.
I got bored with my background..so I changed it and the colors. I didn’t find a theme I loved more Than the one I have now sooo I hope you guys like it.
What would you guys like to see more..?
I find your blog hard for me to read. I’m a 70+ year old, California-born, former Peace Corps/Nigeria from the 60s. I knew and worked with Fulani people, and Hausa, and Burim, and Kanuri, and Yoruba, and…. I like seeing these faces again, but I regret that they are neither easily identified by name, ethnicity, nationality or anything else. The are just faces. If your background were less cluttered and not black with green or blue text it would be easier on these old eyes of mine. I like your blog enough to follow it. I wish you the best.

Thank you!! :-)))
Thank you so much…if only she lived in New York City :-)
13. Things Africans do that pisses you off?
This is specifically done by the youth, but I hate when young Africans come here and assimilate to this new culture and end up forgetting where they came from and the values they had back home. It’s okay to embrace new ideas but don’t forget about yours.
21. Do you miss anyone in Africa?
Yessssssss..I miss a lot of people :( I miss my aunt though(I was named after her and still attached to her). I love her. 💖💖. I want to go back so bad just to see her.
27. Would you rather live in Africa or in your current location?
Well Africa is a continent and its huge and different from country to country. I am sure there might be other parts of Africa that I’ll probably love more than the U.S. I think I wouldn’t mind living in my country but I feel like my life is here because I grew up here. I only have my family there, but all of my memories are here.
29. Dumbest question someone has asked you about Africa?
Do We have bikes in Africa -_______________- ????
36. What country has the cutest boys?
That’s hardddd! Africa boys are hot. I can’t see myself with anything else. They are also very diverse in physical features. A lot of options. I can’t answer this question because all the countries have the good and the bad. Lol.
hey, one thing I can definitely say is that Africans are very diverse in languages, cultures and even in physical features. And sorry I don’t have a any snack ideas, :-)
