Memoirs of a Kenyan mom Abroad
(Denmark)

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the blogosphere.

I am happy that you are here! 

My name is Judy Wanjiku Wanderi Jørgensen. I am a journalist, creative writer, blogger, kitchen goddess, photographer, and mother of two Afro-Viking boys.
 
On this blog, you will find content on parenting, racial/cultural dynamics, and musings on this thing called lifeAt a very early age, growing up in Kenya, I became a voracious reader as an escape into a different world. Away from the overwhelming reality of growing up in dire social and economic circumstances. 
And in 2009, through sheer force of will, I ended up at Aarhus University and Swansea University through a full scholarship from Erasmus Mundus. While in Europe and UK, I pursued a two-year MA in journalism, with a focus on war and conflict.
 
In 2013, I got married and moved back to Denmark. It is in this period that Memoirs Kenyan Mom Abroad blog was born. As a means for documenting my immersion into a new life abroad, a self preservation of sorts.
 
Call it the law of attraction, but 7 years later, here I am. I am have finally found my balance between two cultures. I am creating and living what once seemed like an elusive childhood dream. Through blogging, I have picked up invaluable handy content creator skills: SEO copywriting, CMS, and Social Media Marketing.
 
I have grown in leaps and bounds into being a talented and multifaceted content creator.
 
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want to commission me for writing or photography projects. Or a chat on the issues that I cover herein.
 
I would love to hear from you.
