One of the most “not so avoidable” experiences in life is having to live in a foreign country and go through the motions without the hassles of daily ignorance and for some others random unnecessary jokes. Oh also, the dealings your endure in your home while trying to find a balance between who you are and where you are from.

I put together a list of 10 things African Immigrants can relate to. Enjoy.

  • #1. The Foreign Name Struggle is REAL

African Immigrants always dread the ‘Notorious’ Attendance List because no matter how many times you properly pronounce your name to the whole class the Teacher always ends up unconsciously BUTCHERING it.

  • #3. All The DUMB Questions about Africa

It gets pretty irritating at some point you know. People actually ask dumb questions about what happens where you are from and whether or not you grew up in mud houses and huts.
