What an honour it was just to witness the last week in New York City with the MIPAD (Most influential People of African Descent under 40) crew. Great connections were made. What MIPAD stands for is black excellence and it is paving the way for current generations and future generations to make positive impact changes in the world today.
My emotions ran wild remembering all that I've gone through when I was welcomedge to be greeted by the president of Sierra Leone, Julius Maada after watching a highlight of Crossing Africa as well as future projects.
What is MIPAD?
In support of the International Decade for People of African Descent, proclaimed by United Nation's General Assembly resolution 68/237 and to be observed from 2015 to 2024, the Most Influential People of African Descent (MIPAD) identifies high achievers of African descent in public and private sectors from all around the world as a progressive network of relevant actors to join together in the spirit of recognition, justice and development of Africa, it's people on the continent and across it's Diaspora.
