 "If you don't like someone else's story, write your own" - Chinua Achebe

Africa and Africans have awoken to the realization of the negative impact of commercials and various narratives about Africa's past, present, and future, written by non-Africans. These stories affect the lives and everyday realities of people of African descent.

Negative narratives, have affected the way Africa and Africans are seen, perceived, and reacted to.

Are you African? Has any positive African idea ever jumped at you? Start working on it. 

Connect with like minds via Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook, Instagram, or by any means that you can.

Start making your contribution. You can't turn a blind eye. We have to start changing our own stories from within and without and all hands must be on deck. The next generation of Africans is counting on you to make a difference.
