The Journey Begins

Hello, thanks for joining me! 

From before I was born, my parents have been intentional with connecting me to my Cameroonian roots. There were signs of my heritage and culture all throughout my home, from the decorations on our living and dining room walls, to my father’s accent, to music and conversations in French. They made sure that I was connected to my family overseas by taking me to Cameroon three times over the course of my childhood. From each experience, I learned a little bit more about myself and my family. I have been blessed with the opportunity to not only return to my country of origin, but to learn there and take classes in various aspects of my favorite subject areas, including foreign language, social change, and the arts. While there, I will be gaining more knowledge about the Cameroonian people, my tribes, and I will be reconnected with my family face to face once again. I will be using this blog to keep you all updated on my journey overseas and I look forward to sharing my stories. Feel free to message and/or email me about anything you would like for me to discuss, or any questions that you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!

P.S. I have made a go fund me page for my study abroad experience, and I would appreciate it if you would support me by donating or sharing my link with others. NO donation is too small, every penny will be greatly appreciated. Sow a blessing, and I promise you will see the fruits of it in your own life. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

  2. Africa in miniature!
    Land of diversity and pleasure!
    GREEN for great vegetation in virgin equatorial forests.
    RED for unity in this rich diversity.
    YELLOW for the sunshine and the savanna.
    That’s where you are off to, jeune et vaillante camerounaise!

      1. You are such an Videographer/photographer! love the “jump pose” over the water and the portrait of the young lady(my favorite). you caught her personality and ambiance. I feel a little dizzy from watching the boat ride (lol). But you are such an inspiration to our family and im sure you are leaving your mark on the home land! Keep up the good work and May the Shalom of God envelope you. Uncle Lawerence
