I type this fighting back tears, because I hate goodbyes. My best friend says I have attachment issues, so I guess this is one of those times where these issues show. I am sitting in the Statistics lab and am supposed to be working on my Statistical Consulting assignment, but here I am being reduced to tears by this post. I have been dreading writing this, I have been stalling till a few minutes ago when I came across a quote by Harriet Tubman that gave me the courage and motivat...

I have always wanted to interview someone who shares the same sentiments as me when it comes to gender issues and feminism and hopes for Africa. Someone who has dedicated her time to teach girls that they are superheroes and to never hide their light. Tshepo Jamillah Moyo is a 22-year-old Motswana superwoman, writer, and gender activist. This was a fun interview to do because Tshepo is someone I have always admired. 1. First things first, who is Tshepo Jamillah Moyo? Tshepo J...

Often times we live life from day to day, going through the motions. Often times we walk through doors that are not meant for us, doors we would not walk through if we had the choice. I’m saying this because I have been thinking a lot about life recently. I’m in my final year of a BSc in Applied Sciences with a double major in Mathematics and Statistics. This was not my dream. I actually wanted to be a doctor when I was 18. I was wide eyed and fresh out of high school. I had ju...

Growing up there never really was any big fuss over technology and innovation. I used a computer to play pinball and minesweeper. On rare days where our stone age type computer had internet I would use it to Google dolls and pictures of the Eiffel Tower. It never really had any great impact on my upbringing. Yes, it excited me but I was not aware of it to a point where I would sacrifice playing house with my friends for sitting in front of the computer. Things have changed...

Botswana is a landlocked country in Southern Africa. We share borders with South Africa, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Botswana is flat with 70% of its territory being the Kalahari desert. The main sources of income for my country are diamond sales, beef exports and tourism. Last year, Botswana topped the Lonely Planet’s list of best places to visit in 2016. Now this means you definitely have to come visit. Here are 4 things I suggest you do when you come here. 1. Sandboarding...

I am a feminist and sometimes I find that my culture and my ideologies clash. Let me explain. I grew up in Botswana in the 90’s, in a village called Mochudi, just outside the capital city Gaborone. so I wouldn't say the Tswana culture (the general term for culture in Botswana, made up of the cultures of the many ethnic groups.) had a great impact on my upbringing. However, as a Motswana I was exposed to traditions and cultural practices people in Botswana uphold. These are thin...

I think I speak for most Africans who grew up here that we have at one point in our lives wanted to go live somewhere else, far away. Preferably somewhere with snow and no power cuts. Somewhere with adequate water supply and quite possibly better job prospects. I was thinking of this a couple of days ago while in a bus from the capital city and back - my home village in Botswana is an hour drive from the capital. My thoughts about assimilation and the concept of relocating to f...

Its that exciting time of the year where everyone crosses over to the new year with big expectations and even greater plans. February will roll by in a few weeks. Many will fall prey to the resolutions abandoning group and leave all they had set out to do wither away. I really hope you guys don’t do this, soldier on until the end. I am an eternal optimist. I believe in making lists and plans and I get excited with the spontaneity that comes with the new year. I mean ANYTHING ca...

Officially it is reported that at least 240 people were killed in Burundi as of 11th December 2015. This count is however independent of the many other deaths that have been reported unofficially since late April to present, due to political unrest in the country. Today I want us to take a little break from our lives and talk about Burundi. Now, before you wrack your brain wondering what or who Burundi is and go off on a Google search, let me say Burundi is a landlocked country (...
