MOST RECENT

In 2017 I often traveled for work so my employers planned and paid for most of my trips. While I am and will always be grateful for those travel opportunities, I welcomed the possibility to plan and pay for my trips on my own this year. It hasn’t always been practical or convenient and my savings account took a big hit, but it has been fulfilling so far.

If you share my passion for Africa and/or interest in knowing more parts of it β€” and more importantly have the means to do so β€” I encourage you to support local businesses and African economies, and thus contribute to #AfricaRising, when you go on vacation. // #MyAfrica πŸ’› #54before54

PS: I share all my planning tips and some of my budgets/ expenses on my blog and in captions here on Instagram. Reach out if you have further questions.

Side note- I’m not sure sweet and sour sauce works so well with spring rolls πŸ˜’πŸ˜’

In November it will be 2 years since I β€œmoved back” to live and work in African countries. I left the US, went to Nigeria to continue searching for a full time job, and it was hard...
.
I have done what the society expects of me (except pursue a preferred career path (doctor, lawyer, engineer, banker)) yet stayed at home 4 months that seemed like an eternity. Four months when I sent many cover letters, waited for HR departments to read my applications, looked up profiles on LinkedIn daily, scheduled networking meetings, swallowed my pride to ask my parents, aunts, uncles, friends, former classmates and professors for help. I accepted a job in a different field than what I studied for a few months, another temporary job for the summer and eventually the placement in Senegal. But I turned down a conditional offer I wanted but could not fulfill after a long recruitment process..
.
I’m sharing this to discourage followers in the diaspora who want to come work in Africa from developing a romanticized view of my lifestyle: a lot happened - and still happens - behind the photos. Sometimes it pays to do what I did, and at times it’s best to take a job in Europe or North America that allows you to work and travel in Africa once in a while.
