Video Q& A…Life in Uganda


Ever so often, I link my You Tube videos to my blog so that both platforms can be well-informed about the latest happenings in my world, especially as it pertains to the Ms. Black Expat arena. Well, I just uploaded another video to my You Tube Channel and I want to make sure you have a chance to check it out.

This time around, I highlight a few of the questions that some of my followers sent me over the last few weeks. While transitioning back to Uganda, I didn’t have time to post it but the video was actually made while I was still in the States.

Oh, and by the way, this is only part 1. Stay tuned for the next video which will highlight some of my thoughts toward colorism and being a lighter skinned African American woman in Uganda.

Let me know what you think!

Thank you for your continued support!

      Hey there! Thanks for your questions. No, TEFL is mainly for Asian countries, especially if you plan on teaching English as a Second Language.

      I found my job on ….well actually, my resume was on there and they found me.
      It’s a great link for international positions, however, there is a fee. There are others but it really depends on where you want to teach. Do you want to teach in Africa?

      No, I didn’t visit the country.

      You can always start a business, do consulting, work odd and end jobs and get paid under the table but the majority of people here are either working in government or for some contract.

      My job provides health insurance. Yes, they have a wide network of multiple types of health insurance available here.

      Thank you for your questions1

    What’s the teachers minimum salary, if you don’t mind answering.
    I heard there are kings in Uganda. Are they as popular as the president?


    • Ms. Black Expat says:

      The salary depends. It really depends on the amount of years you’ve been teaching. So sorry for the delayed message.

      Thank you so much for emailing me…oh and kings…ummm yea….they are here…

It would be nice now if I could connect with a sister and do more work there. I has been hard because of the lack of trust. (mostly on my part).

      Hey Candice! Thank you so much for reaching out to me. I really appreciate your kind words. They mean alot to me. i am glad that you found joy in my story and testimony. Now, that would be great if you could visit.

      What kind of work do you do for the children? How did you get involved? So with your degree, what do you want to do? Teach?

      Thank you for connecting with me and visiting my blog. How did you find me, by the way?

        Hello. The work is sending shoes and clothing and supplies a couple of time a year. I got involved through a small school in the village whom I found out about from a friend here in the US. With my degree I will teach English. Right now I’m still in school. I hope to teach at an international school. Rainbow International to be exact. I found you on YouTube and was like “Wow, the answer to my prayers”. I sent you an email last week, did you receive it?
