Yes! I am still alive and kicking it. For the past hour I have been thinking about what in the world I should write about today. But then I reminded myself why I started all of this; having the freedom to say and share whenever I feel like it.
So, what I have been up to? Well, graduation is around the corner - haven't I
talked complained about school to often already? I am currently doing my graduation assignment at Vlisco, a Dutch fashion company specialized in African fabrics. My fellow African bloggers; does "Dutch Wax" or "Wax Hollandais" ring a bell? I'm pretty sure it does. I'm having a good time over there and I am working on interesting projects. It feels good to be able to work at a company that's so close to my African heritage and culture. There is so much more to learn about all these African fabrics, and it's quite a pity that I have not paid that much attention to it while I have been surrounded by this lifestyle for the past 23 years. Sometimes it can be difficult to live in a western society whilst still trying to hold on to your African heritage, culture, norms and values. It is something I have been battling for as long as I can remember, but it feels good to know that I'm not the only one whenever I step foot at the Vlisco office. I feel fortunate to meet colleagues who feel the exact same way as I do. It's up to us to make the best out of both worlds.
Wearing a super simple outfit, but this silver vest is still a long time favorite of mine. I missed blogging but I want to publish quality and honest posts as well. So, my mission is as follow: Gotta find my mojo again! To be continued..
