The cannabis creative on edibles, living abroad, and what legalization means for Latin America, West Africa—and beyond.


I was born on Staten Island to West African parents. I grew up in an immigrant household, and since I’m the oldest of four girls, it’s always been sort of like, set a good examplego to school—yada yada. 

My heritage has always been a very visible and sonic part of my life, but it’s pretty complex and problematic in its own ways. It’s just strange to never feel like I completely belonged there or in the U.S. I think a lot of people have this sentiment. It’s probably why I live in a place now where I also don’t belong.


When it comes to consuming THC myself, I am more analog.
