Message from Edite:

“Hi I’m Edite from Angola, a country located in the South-West of Africa. I grew up in a very beautiful city called “Malanje”. There are beautiful waterfalls there. People love socialising in Angola – we love to meet up and eat, drink and dance. Cemba and Kizomba are our traditional dances which you dance as a couple. It’s a very elegant and friendly dance. In Angola the national language is still Portuguese so our culture has been influenced a lot by them, especially our food. Our food is very rich, colourful and diverse. We have so many different types of fruit and vegetables in Angola.

My grandmother taught me to cook when I was very young. She passed away when I was 12 but I always remember the dishes she taught me. I was feeling very isolated living in the UK, even though I arrived here 18 years ago. When I heard about Migrateful I knew this would be a great way to get out of the house, meet people, share my skills and also learn from others. I am very grateful to Migrateful because this opportunity is helping me to reconnect to my roots and keep the knowledge of my traditions alive. I feel very proud to share with London my Angolan culture. It’s helping me to remember who I am and where I’ve come from.”
