I am AfroFilipina and I am invested in creating a space of empowerment and connection. It is also my way of learning more about my Filipino roots. The more I meet and converse with other Filipinos, the more I find that we have in common.
I used to think I was alone in not knowing the missing pieces to family stories, myths and legends. I am also in search of my lost family on the island. Connecting with other Filipinos has reassured that I am not alone in my search for the missing pieces.
I really feel our culture, people and language are beautiful! Loving myself makes me feel beautiful as well. Afrofilipina is beautiful!
This is a long video but I watched it because I had no idea of the challenges children have to find education on the island. Also it is filmed in Mindanao, where my family is from.
