The Meet-Ups


the meet-ups

Broke is a permanent state of a 20-something year old, however, that has never stopped us from wanting great experiences. imara's meet-ups are deliberately curated experiences with the broke 20-something year old in mind. Sometimes these experiences are trips to elsewhere, sometimes they are discovering place you never knew in your own neighbourhood and sometimes they are simply revisiting familiar spaces with new company. They are affordable, fun and productive experiences for gaining sister friends, having crucial conversations, getting constructive feedback, hearing words of affirmation, networking, and discovering new destinations. If interested, babe, RSVP below. 

I look forward to meeting you beautiful soul you!

Morons vs. Morals: Scriptures from the Streets is an exhibition of art @nafasiartspace by @localfanatics that was curated by my good friend, Rebecca Corey. Each work is inspired by a piece of street graffiti with Swahili adages, so going to the exhibition means not only seeing beautiful artwork but also learning more about the fabulously creative and witty ways people use kiSwahili to comment, criticize and advise. When you go, let me know so that we can discuss the pieces in the show.

I love coffee shop vibes but I absolutely cannot stomach coffee itself. So, I order tea at coffee shops just to sit inside them. Through my tea at coffee shops escapades, I discovered that there are only a handful of places that sell coffee that also make great tea, and that the best thing a tea lover can order at a coffee shop is, a Chai Latte. Instantly, I made it my goal to find the best Chai Latte in the world! Join me in my quest, Chai Finding - Northern Tanzania edition, every Friday at 4:00 pm.
