Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Typical

Typical

In America, everyone knows their birthday, but I don’t know mine.  I guess there wasn’t a calendar readily available to my mom when I was born in the refugee camp in Kenya. Maybe that makes me different from other teenagers, but I have lots of similarities to them too.  I like to drink coffee and hang out with my friends. I want to go to university and study something in human services.  I want to help people in need, maybe under-served kids -- the ones no one knows are hurting on the inside.  I see myself and my friends in them. I want to live away from home and be independent before I get married. (Of course, my mom is nervous for me...just like other moms!) I also want to go to prom.  I’m a senior, so of course, I want to go!  I’d like a white or pink dress with sparkly beading.  And heels...I want to wear heels.  That’s pretty typical American, isn’t it?
