After visiting 8 countries on The Continent of Africa, I'm inspired to have serious dialogue with people on the same vibe about the future and what role we must play, especially when it comes to reconnecting to Africa. The best way I know how to share my journey of Africa and beyond is storytelling. I've met some amazing people along my journey who also have their own amazing African journey to share.
