My purpose in life is to “uplift, inspire and entertain” through the power of the positive word. Using media in all of its forms I hope to encourage people to achieve their potential and be who they are born to be.
I desire to uplift all I come into contact with, but particularly young people of colour both in the diaspora and in Africa. I’m also keen to challenge the negative stereotypes which persist in the media and society at large about the potential and actual achievements of African and Caribbean youth, and about Africa as a continent.
Something 2 Say is modelled on the successful companies of people I admire greatly such as Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo, Russell Simmons’ Def Jam and Richard Branson’s Virgin Media Group.
I am fascinated by people with vision and am looking forward to connecting with as many visionaries, go-getters and action-takers through this blog as possible. Thanks for reading!
