Home, Africa, Nigeria, has been on my mind a lot lately.
How I can expand my vision to make a difference there. How I can be more connected with other Africans who live abroad.
How I can harness the wisdom of anthropologists, African leaders, and other thought leaders who care about the future of the continent.
I’ve come to believe that decisive action is the best form of eloquence.
If this is true, then what can we do today, right now to move Africa forward?
I believe this. Absolutely and completely.
I believe this too. Absolutely and completely.
This means we must work with vigor but also temper our expectations with patience.
No, things are not as they should be but, yes, there is hope. We will do better.
I found these particular quotes to be quite sage and very much in alignment with my current thoughts of Africa, the role of Africans in its development, and making a difference there.
- Are you passionate about Africa?
- Have you thought about making a difference there?
- If you had $500,000 to spend in any African country, where would you spend it?
- What would you spend it on?
