About Me

If you have been reading my blog from the beginning then you know that I started with photography. Along the line, I began to share my thoughts and experience as a new mother.

The first bio I wrote here was the following;

I was born in Cape Verde and moved to Portugal at age 1. At age 13 I moved to United States and have been residing here ever since. During my journey to the U.S, I overcame many obstacles that lead me to convert to Islam. Through Islam, I found a new identification and place in this world. I became very passionate to learn about different cultures from an inner and outer perspective, especially my culture. One day I bought a professional camera with no formal training I began to capture the beauty around me. I hope to share with words and image the beauty that I see.

Since then a lot has changed. I am now a mother of three and no longer living in the States. Initially, I had moved to Egypt as a mother of 2 but shortly after our family grew a little bit more with 3 little kids. The experience as an expat mother in Egypt in a very un-expat area was very unique. I had many challenges as a mother in Egypt and was having a very different experience that I was not able to find with other expats Egypt and on the internet.

This blog became just that, a way to release all my experiences and challenges that I have to face on a daily basis, hoping that someone can benefit and be part of a closer community

      1. Oh, thank you so much for stopping by, Andrea! I really appreciate it. :)) Yes, I’ve been blogging for a long time, ha! But I can never seem to find a way to time-manage well-enough and blog while I’m traveling. I still have to figure that part out. :))

      1. Not hearing from you since the birth of your baby, I was beginning to worry. Relieved to hear from you now. Sorry about internet problems. I’ll look forward to hearing from you again after everything is worked out.
