Kola, if you read my essay "Silent Cry" you should be able to figure out how old I am. But I'll just tell you that I am 2 years older than Sudan's civil war. I am today 23 years of age. I moved to America about 10 years ago.
You know, I am everybody's friend because God knows I have been thrown around through different cultures since I was 6 years old. First, I lived in the village. And then I moved to a refugee camp in Ethiopia. And then back to the village and there we walked for 2 months to KaKuma refugee camp in Kenya, where we left to be living in Nairobi. In Nairobi I had to learn Swahili and I did. We lived there for 4 years before we arrived in the United States. So, I've spended years here, there.. etc...
So, I never really lived in one area to be used to the same people.. this is why I love everybody and get along with just about any race in the world. I treat people equally. I had to learn to get along with people whom are not my own because I'm basically alone in the world as much as I've been travelling.
I am very used to it though and now all I wana do is travel, travel, travel for the rest of my life as long as I have the money to do so.
