A delicious treat that is a cross between a cookie and a brownie. Perfect for July 4th, Christmas, and Valentine's Day!
I was 9 years old when I moved from Nigeria to the United States. My parents hope was to offer us a better life here in the US. Once I arrived here though, I didn’t quite realize the move was permanent. It wasn’t until I started school that it dawned on me that there was no going back.
I won’t lie, at the time I hated living here because in addition to experiencing a huge culture shock, I had no friends and the kids in school were mean. I missed my life in Nigeria, in addition to my friends, school, and home.
At the time, I didn’t fully understand the value of living in the United States until I went to college. It was there that I formed my own identity, opinions and was able to make my own choices in life.
As a woman, I realize how blessed I am to be living in a country where we each have a voice. I wouldn’t have this life anywhere else in the world and I am so eternally grateful my parents made the move because I know their struggle wasn’t easy.
On that note, I wish you all a Happy Fourth! May you recognize the true value and beauty of living in the United States.
