Thank you. Identity is such a powerful thing. It shapes us in obvious and not so obvious ways. I don’t even know what I am, I was born and raised in Ghana, emigrated to the US 10 years ago. Don’t call me African-American, I’m not. I have all the right parts but under the hood purrs a different kind of beast. I avoid mirrors. lol!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
