I came across a web series called Ackee & Saltfish yesterday which led me to Cecile Emeke's YouTube Channel. This then led me to her "online docu-series" titled Strolling, which brings together stories and perspectives from Africans around the world. I've chosen these videos from what I've watched, but there are are so many more on her channel.
One of my favourite New Zealand owned television shows is called Both Worlds. The show allows young migrants and refugees to tell their stories, and being from a refugee background it makes me so happy to see people like me on screen that I can relate to. Watching Cecile's videos just took that feeling to an entirely different level. The people that she has talked to have such an intuitive perspective on the issues facing people just like me and also the major problems with society.
Even though these people live across the world from me, I feel what they're saying on such a personal level. I just wanted to share this here to highlight the incredible talents of my fellow Africans, and also in the hopes that you'll take something from this series. I hope you enjoy your week! xxx
