My experience in China has been made the better and has seen much brighter days because I have the opportunity to spend it with these two angels! I can be my absolute silly, sarcastic and sassy self with them and I couldn’t ask for better friends! From middle school with @larryseadrianne and RU with @sdotbell never in a MILLION years did we expect to be lean on each other through the BLACK experience in China. True Blessing. #jerseystrong #blackgirlinchina #blackinChina …we’re a long way from home and LIVING!!! (at Tianhe Big World Bowling Alley)

Sometimes you have to let go and just LIVE in the moment. It’s not as easy as it sounds but I’m trying. ๐Ÿ˜#blackgirlinchina #guangzhou #happyday #smile #china (at ๅปฃๅทžไธญๅคง่ผ•็ดกๅŸŽ)

#1 thing I will NOT miss when I leave China: the constant STARING… almost EVERYWHERE I WENT. There are other vile actions that come along with the staring, but the STARING alone was enough to drive me CRAZY!! It’s apparently not rude to stare, take pictures of people you don’t know or blatantly invade the privacy of strangers. Some look at my brown skin, slim figure, along with the texture/style of my hair and are mesmerized ๐Ÿ˜ some are scared ๐Ÿ˜ณ and some even show signs of disgust ๐Ÿ˜ท I tried my hardest to be understanding to the very clear truth —- that for many Chinese ppl I see on a daily basis, this is there first opportunity to see a woman of color or be in such close quarters with one. Staring cultural norms and seeing me is a culture shock but this is one thing I WILL NOT MISS. #themniggascrazy #itaintforeverybody #icant #icannot #imdone #thetransitionback #us #china Some ppl deal with it better than me… And I thank God for getting me this far. ๐Ÿ™Œ #blackgirlinchina (at ไฝ›ๅฑฑๅคง็€้Žฎ)
