Adjusting to the Scandivania life, in particular, the Danish one has not only been humbling but challenging. I took a big risk by moving abroad, leaving my comfort zone, and embracing a new culture.
The inspiration for this story came from a documentary series on Al-Jazeera about the untold life of Africans in Europe.
Perhaps to give a preamble, I feel fortunate to have first arrived in Europe 10 years ago, on a foreign correspondent program in Helsinki. That trip marked a journey that would see me experiencing mundane things like flying in an aeroplane for the first time.
