It's bittersweet, really... I'll miss the shopping and freedom to move around towns easily PLUS being able to go out in shorts if I feel like it...buuuut I'm back to some real sunshine finally!
I have learned a lot though. It's been like a condensed gap year and I think the experience will help me out a lot in general and with modelling as well.
I know now how important it is to stay humble and polite no matter how irritating the people around you may be...apparently I came across as rude to some people who I found patronising toward me.. Always be the bigger person. Count to 10. Woo-saaah ;) lol
I also learned how frickin happy I am to be born Kenyan! Oh my gosh! For reasons too many and widespread to list here :) Plus how happy I am to have the mum I have :) <3
I've found that my money-managing skills are pretty wanting too! I'll let u in on a secret, my parents gave me 300 quid IN CASH which I carried on me...so first on the list next week is I'm getting me a bank account stat!
Oh why next week you ask?? Because I'm 18 on Sunday baby!! I think I'll go out on the lash that night because I'm such a rebel :D
Below you will find a few highlights of my trip in photos :)
