I am Marame and you can refer to me on this blog as SenAmerican. I am a mother, wife, and professional who was born and raised in Senegal but has been living in the US for nearly fifteen years. The purpose of this blog is to chronicle life in the hyphenated space between Senegal and the USA and trying to make the most of both worlds. I assume there are many of you who live a similar life — caught in between two or more cultures. Please join me in this journey. I will be writing about culture, language, education, politics, food, fashion, and much more. I look forward to stimulating and respectful conversations that will move us forward.
I invite you to subscribe so you can suggest topics and comment on posts. If you would like to guest-blog, I will be thrilled to have you on because there are myriad of issues to discuss within the space that we live in — that I know nothing about! The blog language is English but feel free to write in Wolof or French.
To protect the privacy of my family, I will refer to my husband as K, my daughter is A, and my sons are L and S. The positions I take on issues are my own and do not represent their views.
I reserve the right to edit or delete any comment that I find inappropriate or disrespectful to me or my readers. Please do not spam or make sales pitches on this blog. They will be quickly and ferociously deleted.
