I’m not here to state universal truths or create controversies, far from it.
I’m interested in opinions and thoughts.
So please feel free to comment on anything that interests, provokes, inspires or generally makes you think.
I am 29 years old, of Finnish origin but part of a Swedish speaking minority. Having lived more than half of my life in Tanzania and Kenya, East-Africa is a big part of who I am and therefore I do consider it as a home. I am very fortunate to have traveled and experienced so many different people and things all over this world. With this has come the realization that I really know nothing and therefore I try to stay humble.
I am currently residing in the Balkans but still traveling a lot for work.
I really cannot (or at-least should not) complain about my life. Obviously there have been ups and downs (heartbreaks and losses) but that is expected and all a part of this beautiful mystical existence.
Personality wise I am somewhat shy and slightly introverted but once I get to know you this changes.
I love to create, I am a dreamer as well as a thinker and have many random ideas pop into my head daily.
A bit about this blog.
As I did grow up in Tanzania, I learned Swahili as well as the culture and from this the blog name Kamakawida came.
Kamakawida (or Kama kawida) means “as usual” or “same old” in Swahili. Similar to the way you would answer someone who asked you how things are going. My username “mightymasai” came from the idea of combining two nicknames I have been called. Locals in Tanzania would call me “nusu masai” (half masai) because of my height and a few friends in Finland call me “mighty” because my real name is the name of a Norse god.
As for the blog itself, I know my content does not follow any specific structure, I kind of post what I feel like whenever I feel like. Also the point of this blog was perhaps a more personal challenge rather than trying to gain tons of followers and views.
But please do let me know what kind of content interest you and I can start adding more of it.
