And Still I Rise

“They tried to bury us. But they didn’t know that we were seeds” I met an American girl in Mexico. We stayed in contact during the last year, Messaging each other about different topics. But mainly about the situation in the US and with both of us being black and having different things to say…

#Time To Change

I have been absent. Much more than I ever intended to. Somehow it just happened. While I was thinking a lot of coming back and share my ideas, thoughts and just unleash my inner beasts in that moment, but somehow I got lost. I got lost hard. The second I took a step back into…

Welcome back…

I know I know… I haven’t dropped by in weeks. Things just got in the way. Finals in college, packing and arriving in Frankfurt. And here I am. In Frankfurt. I am going to report about the last weeks…just that I broke my laptop and therefore need my little brother to repair it. Let’s see…

Men

“What type of men do you like?” “I don’t know. I like wine.”

San Miguel de Allende

Three weeks ago my Mexican Culture teacher asked us to upload our favorite cities and places in Mexico to the class’ Facebook page. I didn’t do that assignment. Even though I visited some really beautiful places and cities, I didn’t feel like I was in the position yet to determine my favorite place… until I…

Guanajuato

Guanajuato – the city of frog hills. I travelled here with 3 girls I never travelled with. One girl is Ana, who is going to be in Germany as an exchange student the next semester and two girls from France, who I have classes at 7am  with. Ana drove us here, first time in her…

Huasteca – San Louis Potosi

The adventure of a lifetime began, when we (Memo, Bernie, Octi, Zuzi and I) packed our things to drive 8 hours to the Nature park “Huasteca”. Memo borrowed his Dads car. Thank God he did, because we all had enough space. We arrived almost 9 hours later in a little ghosttown. Nobody was onthe streets,…

Dear 15 years old me…

I wish I could change the path you are walking on right now, wish I could tell you what to avoid and what not, but like I understood time traveling from watching too much science fiction series and movies, I know that if I could and did, I would change my own present and I…

The Life of the Party

I make friends easily. When I want to. I can be the nicest person you have ever met. When I want to. You call fall in love me. When I want to. I bring people to laugh. When I want to. But mostly I don’t want to. People disappoint. People betray and out of my…

No…

“Why don’t you want to dance?” “Because I don’t want to.” “Why?” “Because I don’t want to.” “Come dance with me.” “No.” “Ahhh you’re boring.”

Last Steps

„This is our land“ „We are the people“ Shouting people. I can feel the hatred in their voices and their words represented nightmares of my childhood. I thought this part of my life was over. Some of them were pointing at me and their faces were about to explode. Liquid flew from their mouths, their…

Dia de los muertos

On the 2nd of November Mexicans celebrate the Day of the Dead by accessoirizing the graves of their loved ones with flowers and a lot of candles. I went to Morelia because it is the “place to be” for that day. And even though or maybe because I always had a special relationship with death,…
