Kizzy Online

Yes, Kizzy is my real name! My mom was inspired by the tv series Roots (Kunta Kinte) that first aired in ‘77. Kizzy was one of the main characters. I'm 36 years old, born and raised in The Netherlands, originally from Cabo Verde. Cabo Verde is a group of 10 small islands in the Atlantic Ocean, close to the west coast of Africa. In 2010 I moved from Rotterdam, The Netherlands to the United States. I have a Masters degree in Art & History, specialized in Media and Culture and a Bachelor's degree in European Studies, specialized in International Communications. I'm married to Marston and we've been together for over 10 years, married for 6 years. Together we have a son, Mason, he's 3 years old. We live in San Diego, California.
