My name is Ibokemi Huggins and I make good bread.

A lot of people don’t know my African name. They know me as, “Giselle” – and, actually, my name is Dulcina, given for my grandmother. But Ibokemi is what I tote now, for who I am. “Ibo” is where the two waters meet – we are spiritual people. I am an Orisha devotee, not a Baptist.

I’m from Moruga, the same Moruga-with-the-rice. My mother’ twin sister used to plant rice and we actually know ‘bout the Creole rice more than buying rice. We grow up putting rice on the donkey and running with the donkey toting the load! So I’m a REAL country girl.
