‘I am never alone’

KEYEMO, AGED 8 | London, United Kingdom | Global | Nigeria

‘I am never alone’

My family name means peace and this puts me at ease

I was born to experience the world, explore and always be bold

My family is big so I am never alone

As a child my Dad used to climb trees and lived his life carefree

He tells me tales of growing up in Nigeria and his family home

“When I was 8 I travelled alone”….so Daddy “Can I travel alone?”

His answer is No!

When I am older, I will see the world and the world will see me

I know that wherever I go I am never alone!
