“Being an “African” and an “American” while living in Africa: Where do I fit in?”

My article has been published by the Little Black Village and the Southern Association of Black Peace Corps Volunteers – SAB PCV. The title is “Being an “African” and an “American” while living in Africa: Where do I fit in?”

In it, I talk about how past European colonialism and U.S media stereotypes about Africa have effected many Moroccan’s ability to be empowered about their African descent. I also touch base on my reasons for wanting to live abroad to show foreigners a side of African Americans less depicted in the media. Overall, it’s a very insightful article that may show you a side of Africa you weren’t familiar with before! If you are looking to travel or live in this beautiful continent or if you are interested in hearing about personal travel experiences from a minority perspective then this is the article for you!
