These beautiful landscapes, the food, the rich culture and music, contribute, to a small percentage, to why I'm an afro-optimist! The main reason why I'm a huge believer in Africa is the incredible potential and zeal I feel in my daily interactions with fellow African youth. This post is for all the game-changing African youth who've crossed my path since I set out on this blogging journey. For every African who believes they deserve better, has began to demand better and is slowly becoming better. For all the people who share this vision of African prosperity, that's slowly but certainly becoming a reality. Thank you for playing your part in permanently re-writing Africa's story.
Here are some images of the Africa we so fondly speak of:
I hope these amazing shots inspire more African youth to use their gifts to share Africa's story from within. To showcase the beauty of Africa, everyday, by their words and deeds. To be fully comfortable and confident in our identity as Africans. Here's to an Africa that believes in herself, is beginning her journey to greatness and becoming the incredible land we all know she should be. And here's to all of us Africans, playing our various roles in taking her there. Here's to nobility and being better than our former selves! Welcome back to Shaping African Conversations!
