The Buffalo Herd From my Side of The Rockies.

Friday, January 21, 2011

Hello future buffaloes,

I am glad to share my experiences as an international student with you. Writing is something I like to do - it comes naturally to me. I also love to take pictures and so I have just about the right tools to make this blog fun, interactive and useful. I am currently in my fifth semester here at CU Boulder, with a double major in ‘Environmental Science and Policy’ and ‘Geography’. Five semesters in an entirely different country, with different weather patterns and cultural values. My time spent here has been very interesting and I definitely have a lot to share with you, to prepare you for life as a Buff.

I blend into the life here like a native and yet I stand out as a yellow snake in green grass.

This is because I have kept my identity as a Nigerian national while acclimatizing to the Colorado environment in order to succeed in school.

I look forward to this journey and I hope you do too.

See you at the next post!

‘Funmi Oy.
