9. What stereotypes about the Black community do you wish you could destroy?
The fact that the media makes the people in Africa look poor, In as much as there are people in some african countries that need help, It will be really nice if they showed the amazing wealthy part of these african countries because videos like that brings questions like "Do you have internet in Nigeria" and also the fact that they see us as dangerous people especially if you have a hoodie on in some places.
10. Anything else?
My favorite quote will be " If you start something with fear, before you go halfway you will fail" so anything you want to do, be courageous and have faith that you will succeed. And please visit my blog.
