Welcome to my site! In case you didn’t know, “Colibri” means hummingbird in French. I named it this for a few reasons. The first is that hummingbirds symbolize independence, playfulness, and resiliency. Though tiny birds, they can travel great distances and are very adaptable. These are all traits that I admire. The second reason is that the hummingbird helped me make the decision to move to Africa (you can read the crazy story here). Finally, the title is in French because not only do most French words just sound lovelier, but that’s the language I’m speaking in Senegal.

The goal of this blog is to give some insight into African culture, debunk some stereotypes, and share with you what goes through my mind as I journey through Africa and journey through life.

Thank you for reading 🙂
