With so many Africans going abroad and experiencing other cultures. I believe the modern Africans are becoming more open, understanding and accepting of other practices and in some cases embracing and integrating it into our own cultures. This is a great blog that shows what the modern urban African is opening up and expressing.
Traditional Africans and past generations, our mothers and grandmothers may find this as straying away from out traditions and cultures whereas our generation want to move forward, evolve, we have technology, bigger phones, faster internet, everything is fast and always moving so we need to keep up and grow with our surroundings. I believe that the modern Africans are those that are open to embracing other practices and make a difference in Africa.
My parents have both come from Africa without degrees and have taken their degrees here my mother has her Masters in Nursing and my father is working on getting his Degree in Psychology and Counselling and they want to take what they learn here in the Western world and take it back home to Zimbabwe to open a practice where they can make a change in other people's lives.
There are so many issues in Africa and even though we cannot tackle them all at once it will take us working together, opening up, growing, embracing and integrating what we learned from all over the world into our beautiful Africa.
This is not only secluded to Africa so please, share your thoughts, experiences and I want to know what you would like to make better in your community?
