Hi, my name is Mojo and I do not have a country. I have been traveling for the past two years from one place to another to avoid persecution and deportation to one of the world’s worst dictatorships.
Let me tell you about what really matters to me though: music. I have had the strongest desire to pursue a career in music for the past 10 years and I have failed to accomplish that. The reason why is because I let my circumstances dictate my life. We all have our excuses for why we’re not living true to ourselves. I’m sure you can relate.
I write this blog as a commitment: I will no longer live in fear. I turn 10,000 days old on February 5, 2014. On that day I will kick off my journey to travel the world and film a documentary about music bringing people together.
Why travel the world? because I need to liberate myself and find a home. My relationship with Eritrea, my father’s country that I have never been to, has crippled me. My fear of being sent there controlled me for the longest time and I finally said to myself:
“If I cannot go to Eritrea, I’ll just go to every other country in this world.”
I do not need a residence status to do what I love. I will spend my life going from one place to another sharing my love for music with people.
