Village life of Aketchjoywinnie Africa Model in 2023

It’s time for lunch! Take a seat

We really enjoy eating sweet potatoes.

And the celebration doesn’t end until the next morning. We enjoy eating leftover sweet potatoes with a bit of salt and a cup of tea.

It’s obvious that we really like our carbohydrates. If a meal doesn’t consist of at least 90% carbs, then it’s considered a snack 😅. If any Ugandan tries to convince you that they aren’t big fans of carbs, they’re just messing with you. Well, in my family, if we happen to have a side of salad, which usually consists of onions and tomatoes, and if you’re lucky, there might be some sliced cabbage in it 😅, then you should know that it’s a special occasion. If we were to reduce our carb intake and focus more on high-protein meals, fish, meat, and other sources of protein in Uganda would become scarce within a week.

Picture a scenario where 80% of the food served in schools is changed from a staple called posho to protein-rich options. In this case, each student would require either 10 fish or a kilogram of meat. It’s amusing to think about, but it’s true that our diets mostly consist of high-carbohydrate foods. The main lesson here is that we should aim for a more balanced and diverse diet. 🐣

Delightful Boxing

Dear friends from all walks of life, I hope you had a delightful Boxing Day! Here, we enjoy Christmas so enthusiastically that exchanging gifts to unwrap is not a common practice. We find joy in celebrating the holiday itself.

I’m going to check if there are any leftover food in the kitchen. Today, we’ll eat the food we didn’t finish yesterday.

Haha, it’s all good. I’m grateful to God for all of you and I hope your dreams come true in the new year of 2023.

To whoever is reading this,

I want you to know that I am incredibly proud of you.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve accomplished all your goals or not, what truly matters is that you’re here. The true triumph lies in the journey itself. It’s about persevering and deciding to keep moving forward even when you can’t see immediate outcomes. That, my friend, is a genuine victory..

Don’t blame yourself
You actually did really great
You still showed up
And I am so proud of you

Your being here on Earth makes a difference by filling empty spaces. It’s incredibly important.

Take a moment to appreciate the small or big things in your life. Being thankful opens the way to success.

There’s always something to be thankful for.

Fill the empty spaces of fear with gratitude. Fill the spaces of anxiety with gratitude. Fill the empty spaces of hopelessness with gratitude. Fill the spaces of regret for not doing better with gratitude. Fill the empty spaces of “if only I had…” with gratitude. Let gratitude become your new way of communicating, and you will begin to notice and feel abundance in every aspect of life.

Happy thanksgiving

Happy Birthday 

I am thankful for the ups and downs in life cycle.

I am grateful for being my support.

I appreciate knowing every single hair on my head.

Although I don’t know what the future holds, I trust in the one who does.

I surrender to your will, not mine.

Your plans are greater than mine.

Dear True Vine, help me grow into a better person.

I often feel lost, but you never abandon me.

Please continue to guide and teach me, as I am your child.

Wishing myself a happy 30th birthday 🎂.

What’s the name for papaya in your language?

In my native language, Dhopadhola, which is one of the 44 dialects spoken in Uganda, we refer to it as “Opapo” or “Mupapali.”

Among the Jopadhola people, expressing gratitude takes the form of a food or fruit language. Instead of using words, we prepare a lavish meal to convey our appreciation.

I truly wish I could personally offer each and every one of the 109,000 individuals here a taste of Opapo as a gesture of gratitude for your presence.

To all the wonderful people from different parts of the world, thank you, my sisters and brothers.
