October 11th and 12th became monumental days for my journey with Karfi. I had a chance to speak about my vision for a pan-African, democratized entrepreneurial ecosystem AND got to inspire young women to join this movement.

The GenVolution Conference was birthed about 8 months ago, and I almost killed that dream. But thankfully, 2019 has been a year of “just say it, just do it” for me, and is taking me on a trip I literally have only dreamed about for my 9+ professional career.

Every interaction with someone was confirmation I had to keep this work going, either after my talk at Columbia University’s Social Enterprise Conference or at the GenVolution College Tour stop in Rutgers University. If you’re reading this, let me know if you agree after watching the video above. I need all the encouragement I can get. I only look tough on the outside :-).

And if you’d want to be a part of this journey, supporting as an intern, advisor, or strategic partner, email me at info@karfi.org. Please come prepared with a plan, a hunger to take risks, the humility to work in harmony, and a insatiable desire to empower/inspire.
