Thirsty young man

“I pray that my Africa will no longer be wilted by the spectacles of International onlookers, political totalitarianism, or educational depravity. My Africa, one day, will be one Africa.”

Take three undergraduate majors; International Politics, Black/African Studies, Middle Eastern Affairs,  add a double minor in Human Rights and Conflict Resolution and the result is the cumbersome/daunting academic load, Law school hopeful, Alice Gyamfi is not scared to take on.

Born in Kumasi, Ghana, this Pennsylvania State University student has a deep-seated passion for her motherland; a passion that is evident in her platform for the 2013 Miss Africa USA pageant.

 ”I want to promote universal primary education for young and impoverished girls in rural communities and villages, beginning in Ghana. I advocate that we as women question the patriarchal society in which we live, and never settle for the convenience of traditional gender roles. Intelligent, imaginative, and graceful women defy convention. The world must witness the profound nature of who we are as women of color and children of Mama Africa. In order for this vision to be actualized, we must invest in the education of ourselves and our communities. The fight against illiteracy should be waged with weapons of righteous anger.”

 

What inspires you and what are your dreams for Africa?

 “The next generation is my greatest inspiration because they are the uprising of a revolutionary conviction of corruption, illiteracy, and greed.  I dream an Africa that will arise to meet the challenges of its fate.  I pray that my Africa will no longer be wilted by the spectacles of International onlookers, political totalitarianism, or educational depravity. My Africa one day will be one Africa.”

Gordon Ramsay doesn’t care about your gender, race, or creed. All he cares about is that you can cook.

The contestant, Christine, is blind, and he lets her know exactly what he thinks of her dish.

This is beautiful.
