AFRICAN LOYALTY
Represents Zambia, instead of her birth country Slovenia, or Italy. She first travelled to Zambia to visit her grandmother and fell in love with the country. "Many people question my obsession with this African country, but I guess love is inexplicable. I am a daughter of the soil, a Lenje, a Zambian." (akomanet.com, 8 August 2016)
