Africa Reign: Aisha And Aminah



Aisha and Aminah were born in Uganda’s Eastern District of Iganga in 1988 .Aminah currently  works as a freelance photographer and Aisha  currently work as lead photographer for Uganda’s number one sports website  and their love for African culture has got them to photograph traditional weddings which are very colourful  in the ‘Pearl of Africa’. Aminah has been to Zimbabwe but didn’t go Bungee jumping at Victoria Falls because it’s something she’d love to do with Aisha.

I love travelling and meeting new people, I dream of traveling to at least 30 of the 54 African countries.I believe that whenever someone goes to a new place, it’s not about staying in the five star hotels but to get out of the comfort zone and get to interact with the people in the particular place.Each country is different as regards customs and culture. My commonest phrase is, “Travel is the best form of education.”- Aisha

On building the “African Dream”the twins agree that we as the youth should work together and share positive stories about countries. We as the youth should support each other and help each other achieve our dreams. When the African youth becomes part of the solution and the change that is happening now then we can definitely help portray Africa as the continent were dreams can be achieved and an individual’s full potential can be maximized.

I don’t not think the youth is motivated enough to help develop Africa. The youth have not fully embraced their cultures and always want to welcome Western ideas with many still opting to leave the continent to in search of greener pastures. Many decide not to return because they don’t believe there’s much they can do for Africa as individuals- Aminah

Aminah believes journalism has a personal responsibility of selling Africa to the World, they have to do that  through telling the stories about Africa that are not often told by foreign media. A single African story has been told and that’s a story on AIDS, poverty, crime, genocide, malnutrition and so many more. There are African countries have rebuilt themselves after the problems they have faced and that is something that should not go unnoticed . A good example is Rwanda after the 1994 Genocide.

In my words (my quote)

When they say you can’t, they have no clue how bad you want it. The limits they set for themselves are the same limits they set for you.

Devote your energy to bettering yourself and reaching your dreams, let the result of the work SHOUT your answer to all who say you can’t- Aisha

I am an avid traveler with a background in copywriting, social media management, art exhibition and music festival curation. I am a huge bookworm who not only enjoys getting lost in books, but I also enjoy writing on topics such as travel, art and fashion. I am interested in working in any projects relating to copywriting for small businesses, fiction writing, curating exhibitions for visual artists in Africa. I am also keen to work with small businesses in developing their social media strategies. Africa is my first love and I am currently having a great time exploring her.
