Ever since I can remember, I've felt a deep and profound desire to connect the world to the beauty of the cultures I myself am connected to. This desire has *manifested* itself in different ways for me over the years - through photography, advocacy, writing, working at intl orgs.
At some point though I wanted to do more than to just connect; I wanted to help in a practical way. To make a visible, tangible difference in someone's life. In someone’s life, that really needed it. And it became clear to me that my *dream* was to help local artisans reach new markets and sell their creations in the global marketplace.
This dream was largely unfulfilled until my path crossed with Vanessa Erksine’s ☺️ this ray of sunshine has been working with artisans in Rwanda for several years now, and needed an Erica to help launch her business @vanessababaimports. And we DID IT! The site is UP and the products are there. Link is in my bio. Support your tribe. Support your dreams 🙌🐘💛
