A little introduction

I'm a 23 year old girl, or woman?? I was born and raised in Kenya and now I live in the US- mainly for college.
I moved to the US when I was 19. Yes, sometimes I wonder if my parents love me at all. No I'm joking, they only wish the best for me and want me to have a better life. It has been a tumultuous journey but I could not have it any other way. I have learned a lot, matured a huge deal and been through relationships.
Speaking of relationships. I'm single. Part of it has to do with the fact that I ended up in a podunk little town or state (I can't tell the difference) and the people are as conservative as they come. Very few care to venture outside the race. And of my race, there are only but a few, who almost always or inevitably venture outside the race. Ok, I'm not going to cry about this- its not a biggie anymore. The other reason as I recently discovered, I have been Americanized! Yes, I can't believe it either. African guys don't date me the way I want to be dated. As my friend eloquently put it- "sweetheart, you've been Americanized. That is not how African guys date." She was right. I'll tell you more about my relationships here, stay with me.
Anyway, this blog will document my life in the states, (I'll try and add some of my earliest memories of the US), my relationships, my career, my aspirations and my life in general. Feel free to add your comments- be gentle though- I'm fragile, and hurt easily.
Welcome to my little world, they know me here ;-)
