THIS MOMENT! 🙌🏿 When @kwakusaddo called to say that His Excellency, Nana Akufo-Addo @nakufoaddo, The President of the Republic of Ghana wanted an audience with me on the last day of my holiday in Ghana, I could not even contain my excitement. What a spectacular way to end what has been a truly an incredible homecoming. As @boriskodjoe & @nicoleariparker and our families sat in the presidential office at The Flagstaff House, I was so inspired by The President’s commitment to economic and social growth for Ghana, but also the instrumental role Boris & I can play as influential Ghanaians in the diaspora. I am leaving Ghana a more determied, focused, and excited contributor to this great nation & Africa as a whole. I AM SO PROUD OF US! And we, the collective we, should all be... so wave the flag high! God bless our homeland, Ghana!! 🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭 #PurposeDrivenLife #LiveUpToGreatness #Legacy #AllForOneOneForAll #AfropolitanHoliday #HolidayBozie

Following being presented the #AAIGala2017 Award for #Innovation and #Technology, @uber’s Chief Brand Officer, Ms. @badassboz shared how her #Ghanaian roots continue to keep her grounded, and her hope to inspire the next Generation of Afro-descendants in #technology.⠀ ⠀
“I do wear my heritage’s flag high and with pride every chance I get: in dress, in behavior, in language and even sometimes in the office,” said Saint John, who was striking in a strapless orange African-inspired print dress.”⠀ ⠀
“It is my hope that my visibility at the heights of the #tech giants will inspire other young #afrodescendants to pursuits in #America, corporate or otherwise, especially for my young daughter,”⠀ ⠀

My parents proudly stood beside me last night as I received the Africa America Institute's award for Innovation and Leadership. It was a full-circle moment, since His Excellency, Nana Akufo-Addo, The President of the Republic of Ghana received an award on behalf of the people of Ghana! My alma mater, Wesleyan University was firmly represented by Kofi Appenteng (President & CEO of AAI) and Steve Pfeiffer (Chairman of the Board), as well as my own dad and my classmate, Vanessa Rodriguez! Surrounded by friends and family (including my aunt who flew from London!) to celebrate this incredible moment, I give thanks to God for continuing to allow me to exemplify the mission of AAI, which is to reveal the true contributions of Afro descendants to the world. I am a living, breathing, shining example that immigrants and their descendants do matter to the success of this great country. God bless America. And God bless Ghana. 🇺🇸 🇬🇭 @aaiafrica #YeWoKrom #GhanaJollofIsSweet #Watchmework #aaigala2017 (📸 @kolinmendez @inivisionary)
