Name: Uche
Hometown: Decatur, Georgia and Abiriba, Nigeria
Age: 24
Age You First Fell in Love: I’ve never been in love.
Love is: Giving yourself completely, I think that’s why I’ve never been in love because I wouldn’t be able to recover [from losing it]. I have to be vulnerable enough to love you. Being African has definitely influenced my view on love and marriage. Growing up it’s “Face your books! Face your books!” Then, you hit 24 and it’s, “Where’s your husband?!” There’s no mention of love, we’ve made marriage a destination instead of a journey, one that’s devoid of love. It’s confusing.



  1. it’s being naked with the other person….dropping all insecurities, it’s hard and scary but it’s also peace and freedom

  2. The famous Bill Crosby once said, “It isn’t a matter of black is beautiful, as much as it is that… white is not all that’s beautiful.” I hope that his words speak to your hurting heart of acceptance. My goal in this life is not to redefine beauty, but to change what it’s built on. My blog series, is in hopes that we can all see that our black, white, yellow, green, pink, orange, and every color in between has beauty of its own.


  3. Just to clarify on my previous Comment
    I just started my blog series and I’m, “Promoting” it by posting what its about on blogger’s “Comment Sections”. I’m not referring to you or anyone particular. Luv your post!
