Merriam-Webster defines a ''calling' as ''...a strong inner impulse towards a particular course of action especially when accompanied by conviction of divine influence.'' What is my calling or how do I discover my true calling? That's a question that I am often asked by people. I assume because it is because I carry myself like someone who has found theirs' & is living it. If you ask me what my calling is, I would probably say it is in doing anything which allows me to make use of my...

Just dropping by to let you guys know that am alive & doing fine. What's more time consuming than running one business..*hint (running 2 businesses). I cannot complain about the sudden growth that we have experienced, am very grateful infact. I guess that I just need to get used to the increased workload & work out how to handle these new horizons. I do hope that you are all doing fine & also thriving.

Happy New Year 2022! Am back with a bang (well, kind of), so we are just going to skip all the formalities & get right back to it. This blog title is inspired by the title of a performance play that I recently had the honor of watching last weekend. 'M.Bassy' organizes really interesting exhibitions & this is the first one that I attended this year. A performance by the talented Bermudian born artist 'Sea Novaa' who not only plays music, but is also an artist & also wrote the play...

Museums are opened again...Yippee! This is great news because I, just like many have missed viewing Art Exhibitions. Online Museum visits just didn't cut it for me, just like online concerts & simply anything else that normaly invokes some passion in me, these unfortunately just didn't appeal to me at all. This was my last museum visit before we went into another lockdown last year & this is one that I really enjoyed. 'Peter Lindbergh' (deceased 2019) was a world renowned Fashion...

Why are you all over sudden acting so serious? How come you nowadays don't have time for us? How come we don't see much of you around here? Who's that person taking you away from us? What's with the new look, different hair & make up? What's with the new look? Are you sure you are ok? I mean you said that you are ok but you sound different? How come you don't communicate with us as you used to? What's going on with you that you are not telling us? Why are you always smiling? What are you...

Stop expecting my life to be easy. Life is not easy for everyone (well, not all the time anyway), we all experience major challenges & that does not mean that we are doing it wrong. Stop expecting myself to be able to manage more than I have the capacity to cope with. I need to learn to set boundaries not only for others but for myself too. Learn to stop taking on too much & reacting in shock or shame when I can't do it all. I literally don't need to do it all, nobody does. Stop...

I, together with Donata Burmester of 'AfroSchick' were recently invited for an Interview on one of Hamburg's local Internet TV Stations, 'TIDE Hamburg' as guests on the 'Burudika Show', a show that highlights the Art & Music Scene in East Africa. The show presented by 'Carol K.' shines a light on the various ongoings by Artists & Musicians from East Africa based both on the continent & in the Diaspora & we both got a chance to talk more about our experiences as female...

I miss dressing up to go out for Dinner, I miss putting on make-up to to hide my 'flaws', I miss picking out my outfit & accessories days in advance, I miss looking at the the weather forecast & praying that the weather gods play along with my outfit choice, I miss car doors & restaurant doors being held open for me, I miss the Maitre d' recognising my name (well, why wouldn't he, I made the reservations) I miss reading out dishes on the menu that I cannot even pronounce, I miss...

The BLACK BUSINESS DINNER founded by 'Africa Food Festival Berlin' brings together Entrepreneurs, Mentors & individuals with interesting networks together at one table, in a relaxed atmosphere to offer them a chance to get to know each other, interact & mix up their different positive energies. I had the pleasure to attend the 2nd edition last week in Berlin. This was my first 'real' networking Event since the Pandemic struck & oh boy, was I excited. It felt good to go on the train...
