WHAT AN EXCITING TIME TO BE A YOUNG AFRICAN
And by African, I mean anyone who identifies with the Black Diaspora
When I was growing up in the U.S. in the early 2000s, the same was not true; we were teased for being African. From African booty scratcher insults to being stared at obsessively when we wore African clothes, there was a clouding shame around being an African.
A decade later, things look very different. Young Africans in the Diaspora boast their food, music, and clothes everywhere and at every turn. Black people in general are returning to the continent in droves. Young Africans are also building and innovating on a rapidly changing continent.
In sharing about my experience and reflections on moving from the U.S. to Ghana and doing business here, I hope to help bridge the gap - connect people, resources, and perspectives. My dream is that my work and yours will help move both the continent and the Diaspora forward.
