    Untold- Reclaiming our African-ness

    Untold- Reclaiming our African-ness

    Let’s talk to Kojo (A.k.a. Otmar Watson) and Daphne, two individuals that are part of the founding team of an incredible and unique organisation based in Amsterdam. Untold is an organisation that celebrates African culture and history, through developing talents and skills of young people in performance art while telling the story of their collective African identity.

    Having to constantly explain how the African Diaspora is so widespread around the globe, the repetitive conversation pushed the founders to create Untold as a way to tell the stories of African history, culture, and empowerment. Tune in to hear their take on the similarities between the lives of the vast, spread out African diaspora, all the way from Amsterdam to Suriname to Ghana; and how they use art, drama, music and dance performances to make sure the story of their African heritage is heard.

    Bright Aboagye – Sent back to Africa #WorktoGame

    Let’s talk to Bright Aboagye, an Account Executive at Indeed who balances work-and-play perfectly in his career. While he works hard helping companies recruit skilled employees through Indeed, he plays hard through Yebo Game where people come together to play video games and network as business owners and professionals in a less conventional way.

    Schooled in Amsterdam, Bright has had the privilege of spending time in his ancestral home in Ghana as well as studying abroad in Scotland. This played a role in his choice to enrol in an internationally oriented programme at university, so as to be surrounded by people and ideas from outside his comfort zone.

    Listen now to hear how being ‘sent back’ to Ghana shaped Bright’s values, and how he carries those through his daily life be it professionally or personally.
