There's No Perfection in Faith

Since returning to the United States, I continue to actively reflect on my week in Bo Kaap. That week consistently teaches me lessons on how to be a better person. It’s amazing how exciting my native environment, whether it is the language that is spoken, the religion that is practiced, or the food that is consumed, never fails to teach me so much about how to better operate in my home country and really the world at large.

The Time is Now

Living in Argentina, where my racial identifier and country of origin to a certain extent enhanced my experience, I wondered if my other Black peers could have the same experience. In that context, my Black American identity was something that made me unique and brought on its on sets of privileges. However, in my own country of citizenship, I faced unequal access due to systematic injustice. By exiting my home environment, I was able to see a different future for myself and for the Black community.
