I’m so upset, angry and just completely disgusted about this story!

An Edmond teenager faces a possible life in prison sentence after authorities say they learned about shocking crimes he allegedly committed on an African mission trip.

The suspect was volunteering at a Kenyan children’s home when he allegedly raped and molested a number of young children.

According to court records, 19-year-old Matthew Durham confessed to raping several young girls, forcing some boys to perform oral sex on him and even making other kids watch.

“This is a young man in our community that made choices to exploit children in an orphanage,” said United States Attorney Sanford Coats. “It’s a true tragedy all the way around.”

The 19-year-old suspect traveled overseas with a group called Upendo.

Upendo is an organization that assists neglected Kenyan kids by providing food, housing, clothes and religion.

While Durham volunteered to travel overseas several times over the last two years, on his last visit, the criminal complaint alleges, “Durham requested to stay at the children’s home in an ‘overflow bunk’ rather than at an offsite facility.”

During that visit, several alleged victims claimed Durham “often touched them in a sexual manner or told them to touch themselves while he watched.”

Once confronted, Durham allegedly came clean.

“A caretaker at the orphanage noticed something wasn’t right and confronted Mr. Durham. He admitted to some of the acts,” said Coats.

The affidavit continues, “The victims are believed to be both boys and girls between the ages of four and nine, at least one of whom is HIV positive.”

Prosecutors say while the alleged sex crimes were committed overseas, Durham can be held accountable for the crimes in Oklahoma.

Durham is being held without bond.

I was reading an article the other day called “What Pastel Hair Means for Women of Color" and it stuck so close to home with me, because I have always dyed my hair. Recently though, I have seen the pastel trend and although I tried it a year ago (left picture) it’s something that as a Latinx is very "out of the box" to do. There were scoldings from both sides of the family, and snide comments of how my hair or skin tone were not for that shade. I kept that color for about 4 months, until I had a job in my uni that called for "professional" hair colors. Now that I’m a college junior, I said fuck it and dyed my bangs blue/green because I feel like I am not myself if my hair does not express an artistic part of me. 

I am Diana, 21, Animation Major at Tecnologico de Monterrey. I love to dye my hair and say fuck it to those who think it’s not for latinxs.

I love how if you forget to go on a date with a love interest in KK:H for one day, they break up with you. Excuse you, but maybe I haven’t gone on a date because I’m working all the time, doing photoshoots and hosting parties and earning money. Maybe if you didn’t constantly remark on how cheap my clothes look or if you actually paid for those expensive dates, I wouldn’t have to work like a slave for Simon Orsik 24/7.
