You may think about your identity in ways you had not prior to traveling overseas. Again each experience is different. But I am going to highlight some things you may experience as an African American overseas. There were times when I was overseas and people would not believe I was from the United States.

All of this has happened to me at different times in various points. And sometimes it was tough. Sometimes I felt like a celebrity. All experiences are not bad. I remember a friend was telling me that while she was traveling in Vietnam she was going to a theater. The people Hey beautiful black woman she was from a royal African family. They escorted her to the front of the theater and gave her special treatment. You may be called Michelle Obama or Oprah Winfrey.

In this interesting article, the author writes that even though she is African American, her idea of how people lived and dressed in Swaziland was challenged. She writes. At that time, the people displayed through those media outlets were often depicted wearing bright tribal clothes that left them partially nude, they hunted animals with spears and waged tribal wars often, and they sat on dusty floors in mud huts while cooking things in clay pots.

Their lives seemed so exotic, so otherworldly. However, in Swaziland, I found the people and their activities to be quite familiar—so much that I often grew bored. You might travel abroad and find that nothing happens. You might feel like no-one notices or cares. Love this!
