In a time when immigrant communities are under strutiny by our new administration it is important to know that what makes this country great is its diverse population. I had the opportunity to share my story with the Afrigen project. As an immigrant there is a constant struggle between keeping your native customs and adapting to new one. For this reason we share our stories as we navigate through the world. 

 

"AfriGens @work is a passion project created by @notesfromHR @thisafropolitanlife @bessieakuba where we seek, ask, and document life and career stories from next gen Africans adulting in the West. Why? Because so many of us are affecting change in our everyday lives and doing radical things to push the cultural envelope our parents so securely wrapped us in. We believe it’s important for us to see and share our stories and celebrate our successes."
