Time to get your wallet out: only two more weeks before Christmas. It’s that time of the year again, when miracle happens: mean people become somehow friendly, crazy drivers become tolerant of others, people actually smile at you without reasons, and somehow we all truly believe that we have unlimited cash on our bank accounts to buy everyone a gift in this world.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for your support and participation. As we reflect on the past year, we are looking forward to a better and brighter new year with many exciting things to come.
Let’s face it, Donald Trump is the 45th president of the United States of America, like it or not. The Donald has been solely sworn in as the next ruler of the Free Nation, and for many of us, we wonder if this famous title will remain in the coming days. People are afraid and worried, as the new president paint a dark picture of a long lost America that needs rescue and revitalization on all aspects.
On November 8th 2016, Americans will be voting for their 45th president, in which the top candidates are Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
As a naturalized African American (originally from the Congo Democratic in Central Africa), I realized that this wonderful day (along with many others to come) could not have been possible if a certain group of people stood up for my future, knowing for sure that they might not get a taste of it as they confront unthinkable injustice and ideology rooted in the American society.
The number of African foreign-born immigrants in the United States is on a continuous increase. There are an estimated 1.2 millions African-born residents living in the U.S.A.; over 80% increase since 2000.
AFRICA is full of talented individuals. No matter where we are in the world, there is an African man or woman doing great things. This is what makes my job (if you call it really a job) so enjoyable all the time.
