to be African, to be Woman, to be Creative, to be Fashionable, to be Intelligible, to be be IMARA

imara by Mshana

This is the canvas and the pages on which I curate and display the life I wish to create for myself and other liminal hu-women like myself. I explore here my passion for fashion, present my literally inspired visual arts, write my visual arts inspired written works, share my linguistics, travel diaries, show my finding comfort in food, and heck, whatever else I feel like... Welcome and enjoy!

Mama Afrika

Celebrating AfriKa Day

I live and breathe her.

I think of her before I sleep and when I wake up.

She is my dream and my reality.

She is woman, she is brave.

She is all I could ever ask for.

She is the reason I believe in God really.

She is learning to take up space and so am I.

I love her beauty, her ugly, her amazing and her unmentionables.

I love her, period.

We are in this together #MamaAfrika.
