PersonalNarrative of Photograph

Overthe years, globalization has brought about an increase in themigration of people from rural to urban areas in search of greenerpastures. The migration to urban areas initiates the propensitytowards the concentration of growing populations in moderately largecities. Contrastingly, globalization for most nations in contemporarysub-Saharan Africa, rapid urbanization occurs in an economic settingof negligible industrial growth and transformation. The dismalpicture of these modern nations’ vulnerability to poverty in theglobalizing era may be illustrated by macroeconomic indicators (Youngand Susanne, 103). They portray a picture that limits the ability ofthe poor to tap into economic opportunities that may free them frompoverty. Consequently, lack of these economic opportunities drivesthe people to reliance on traditional methods of acquiring resourcessuch as food. These conventional methods coupled with the increasedmigration of young people to urban cities and towns bring aboutsignificant changes in the dietary and lifestyles. It also bringsabout changes in the roles of both men and women which leads to thenegligence of child care and feeding (Young and Susanne, 103).

Thephotograph above portrays an image of the impacts of globalization inthe contemporary Sub-Saharan Africa in which industrialization,global-warming as well as deforestation have denied both people andanimals the availability of enough food and water. The adverseeffects of globalization have driven most people to migrate to urbancenters in pursuit of white collar jobs, thus, abandoning othersources of income such as farming (Young and Susanne, 103). The deadanimals lying all over, portray a result of starvation and famine dueto lack of food and water. The dry bushes and shrubs may not supplyenough food for the animals, and lack of water drives the animals totravel for miles to some point where they collapse in drought.
