I am from Willy, and Wivine
from the Democratic Republic of Congo, from MBUJI MAYI.
I am from Strict Daniel and Funny Kethia
I am from the crazy people at Christmas time, new clothes, special foods, from people who share in celebration together.
I am from avoiding Halloween, the day of the witches, ghosts, and evil
I am from the spirit of the kangaroo, a family where parents care for and protect their children, guide us in our education, and provide us opportunities.
I am from du riz, arico et poisson, from pondu and fufu.
I am from not liking cheese and other American things, from only eating things from my country.
I am from dancing to afro beats, the rhythmic movement of hip-hop. I am from the music of Bad Bunny, Cardi B and Nicky Minaj.
I am from “Not allowing others to define who I am.” From “do what is best for you?
