Immersed in their world for these nine months, she has seen a stark contrast between their lives and her own childhood. Now, with nothing but time on her hands a desire to connect, she has the perfect opportunity to help them understand their grandmother.
Going all the way back to her roots, Aisha unpacks the reality of a childhood in rural Africa, and the unlikely journey she has made from there to become the worldly woman she is today. Her life has not always been easy, but she has found joy wherever she has gone, and takes nothing for granted. This is the world as seen by Aisha, and it is beautiful.
