Africans of New York (Hawa)

Being born here when did you first go to Africa
Well, I first went to Africa when I was 17 years old to visit family. Majority of my family is in my country and I barely knew any of them so it was a good chance for me to get to know them and to get to know my culture.

How do you like living here compared to living in Africa?

I would not compare life to Africa to life in America simply because the circumstances and goals in each of these places are different from the other. My goal and the goal of most of my family in America is to work hard and earn money to support and uplift those who are still in Africa. Whereas, in Africa the goal is to create communities of growth, love, and basic survival at minimum.
