Just recently I have felt genuinely happy and comfortable in my skin. While on a quest to find who I am, it was not until I travelled to Kenya where I started to learn more about myself. Deeply rooted in my thoughts, I started to become aware of who I am as a person.

Some of the girls decided to purchase food at McDonald’s, but instead of purchasing food there, I decided to purchase food at a little cute teacup cafe. After being served Chicken Rice, Potato Salad, and Chocolate Cake on the plane – in which I did not finish – I was starving. Continue reading “KENYA | THE SECOND FLIGHT AND FIRST NIGHT”
