Pity Party for Two Please?

I’m 23 and it looks like I should have my life figured out by now. I look around and all I see is my summa cum laude graduated highschool classmates, stable relationships, God is in control type post all over my news feed, Its almost like Their faith, love life and academinc life all got brewed up into a pot of merriment and success and what am i doing, I am a college dropout doing educational time in one of the oddest places in the world. I’m not even sure when my last honest prayer was. I say too much…

PROWL MEETS WAGWAN

It was early last week ,while doing the lazy girl activity of group chat perusing I have come to love so well,that I stumbled upon Wagwan's App's Ad .At first glance it seemed like another epic fashion designer's failed attempt of making designer wear -forgive me I had just seen the sneakers .My small mind wanted to scroll down and keep reading on about some failed celebrity's marriage till the word APP called out to the geek in me that is .I had always been of the school of thought that no one was going to build an app for…

Naming Emotions- My theory of Love (Pt 1/2)

"There is no universal definition to what True Love love is; instead it's something we alone can truly define." Mandla Ginger. “Time is both friend and foe, what it helped build today, it can destroy tomorrow.” Mandla Ginger. In case i don't get to be yours tomorrow, I want our story to last longer than time itself. My days before you happened are a little bit distorted because i can't remember a me without you. That is why this will exist. Let this be the letter or story we leave to our children and let them learn from us, the…

College Situationships: My Theory of Love

Nobody really expects to be the 21 year old who has never dated or been kissed or asked out on a real date. Every pot has its lid and yet this pot seems to not have been paired with one. Interestingly though there is never a shortage in the amount of ineligible bachelors to entertain me. Amidst all this i wonder at my theory on love. Who's report shall i believe? My broken hearted, jilted friend, my other broken hearted not jilted friend, the bible, the movies or my eyes. In my attempt to figure this out i have been…

REAL TALK, NO FILTER: MY THEORY OF LOVE

I remember watching a certain movie and learning something about how the dating world is a game of musical chairs. According to this concept after a certain age all the decent guys and girls are either married, dead or have discovered that they bat for the other team. This means then that after this certain age you will find yourself wanting to be in a stable relationship but unable to get into one because it's a game of musical chairs and you my friend have been left standing. I would like to say that this concept does not bother me…

CHASING “AS I AM”

I often would lounge on my couch and ask myself ‘how many shades of black are there in the world? How can I be black when I don’t compare to the colour of the Kango pot in my ambuya’s kitchen?’ I have met my share of black women –petite, curvaceous, smart and bilingual .Looking out to the world at the vastness of black women in my city-I hated being described as a shade of black when I assumed that I was brown (according to the colour codes my pre-school teacher gave me) and I hated being called a ‘coconut too’…

CHASING IN STILETTOS: DEON MURURAMI

Someone wise once said "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime." My name is Deon Mazvita Mururami, it is with this premise that i find myself with love for giving the young girls who have had it hard in life a chance at being great. I feel that once u give them an opportunity you have reduced the chances of poverty and HIV on a large scale. Empower our young girls, teach them to work with their own hands and stand on their own,…

CHASING IN STILETTOS: ADELAIDE MUSEMESI

To be able to share my story on Prowl is such a privilege that I greatly appreciate. From the young age of eight, I had my mind set on being pilot. My first inspiration came from Captain Emily Njovani, who was part of the flight crew on an Air Zimbabwean flight to the United Kingdom in 2002, she inspired me to become a pilot when she invited us to the cockpit. Growing up, my family thought I would eventually change my mind. All the way through high school, my subject choices where guided by my dream to become a pilot.…

CHASING IN STILETTOS: RUMBI MUGABE

“I sat in a dark room sipping my tea staring out the window. The sky was a picture perfect grey with sun rays slowly creeping through the dark covers of night when I jumped out of my chair and screamed “I am a monkey I am a chef I am a darling “ That is two truths and a lie I am a kick-butt young woman .I have had to learn the hard way that it’s okay sometimes, but necessary, to admit that I am good at what I do.” Those are the words that I expect to read one…
