My name is Andy and I am an albino Maasai from Kenya. As I grew older in Africa I became increasingly aware that I stuck out like a tick on a testicle. Apart from my glaring skin, my tribe prided itself on its skills in stadunga (village bouncing), which is something I have never been very good at. The tribal women are terribly shallow and “only the highest jumpers get the humpers”, so as you can imagine my chances with the Maasai women were slimmer than a plagued cow. I think it was my ability to paint sticks that kept me going for so long. Almost every mud hut in my village had one of my stick paintings embedded in their walls. I was told the advertising industry lusted after creative talent so I thought I would concentrate my talents abroad. I decided to pack up my belongings and head off to Axis Adschool in Auckland to start my voyage of discovery. It is my goal one day to return to my village with a huge herd of healthy cattle bearing golden hooves so that I can gloat and blow faces at the village women. If that is to happen I am going to need to learn a lot. Your comments, suggestions and support of my work would be an extremely important and gratefully appreciated part of that process. Asanti sana na kwaheri (Thank you and goodbye).
