My family is from Nigeria, and my full name is Uzoamaka, which means “The road is good.” Quick lesson: My tribe is Igbo, and you name your kid something that tells your history and hopefully predicts your future. So anyway, in grade school, because my last name started with an A, I was the first in roll call, and nobody ever knew how to pronounce it. So I went home and asked my mother if I could be called Zoe. I remember she was cooking, and in her Nigerian accent she said, “Why?” I said, “Nobody can pronounce it.” Without missing a beat, she said, “If they can learn to say Tchaikovsky and Michelangelo and Dostoyevsky, they can learn to say Uzoamaka.”

I started off the new year w my vegan sister at a vegan party/potluck, and I have been vegan since, but I accidentally ate something with dairy in it that wasn't even supposed to have dairy and now I'm freaking out! I feel horrible!

Saw this on OGP and thought of you.

I trying to debate what to do with my hair. I have a high top face right now. I don’t if I want to grow it out and get dreads or cut it off. Maybe I’ll do a mohawk again I’m not sure.


About to get snowed in at #ogp . (at Outdoor Gravity Park)
