jesus, was thinking questions like what's your favourite food.

1. What age did you come here? age of 2

2. Do you like Afrobeats music? no, i like wizkid - don't dull (not sure what camp this falls into - but this is the african song i like)

3. Do you consider yourself to be African or European? african

4. Have you ever experienced racism? all too often, not overt racism specifically but definetely a level of prejudice - especially where i live now

5. What do you think of Brexit? not all too bothered by it. don't think it'll personally negatively affect me

6. What sport do you play? table tennis, golf, football

7. Are your parents strict? don't think so, had a fairly relaxed childhood.. i think they gave up on me early on lol, my bro and sis are the stars of the household (projected prodigees) i'm just the regular dude who tries to be the best role model i can. i don't live with them anymore

8. Are you liberal or conservative? i think this is a very narrow definition. i'd say i think people should be able to do what they want (should they not impose negatively on others) but i have my own views in life which i try and live by.. but i'm hypocritical as hell so it's hard to even segment my own views

9. Did you go to uni? yes

10. What is the meaning of life? for me.. ultimately paradise as i practice (i try to..) islam. otherwise i think it's being able to give - utilise your skills / resources to help the next person. for me, its to set an example for people in my background that there are avenues out of a certain way of living - it's weird cause the more i think about it - the more i think it's a waste of time

Since you are from Tanzania, have you ever climbed Mount Kilimanjaro? Also, is Tanzanite sold quite readily in Tanzania or is it rare and expensive (if you know, of course)?
