HI THERE!!!

FullSizeRender

Thanks for stopping by šŸ™‚ . This blog is about the struggles migrants, immigrants and refugees face. It is to encourage us, make us smile, make us feel loved, supported and heard. We share tips and resources to help our communities be better and get stronger becauseĀ  “I am not my sister’s keeper, I am my sister.”

My name is Jamimah, I love a lot of things: food, sleep and my personal space lol. I am a West African immigrant who lives in America. My first couple years were immensely difficult. I went through a lot emotionally, mentally and physically. I also went through depression and loneliness. I made a promise to myself that if I ever figure out this thing called “adjusting to another culture” I would help someone else. 8 years later, I am in a much better place, not perfect but grateful and the best part? I am keeping my promise to my younger self.
My desire is that you read something on this blog that blesses you, makes you smile, or encourages you.

xoxo
Jamimah
