I’m not even sure when my last honest prayer was. I say too much…

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’…

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,…
