We made the NY Times' cover for that. I've hosted young Africans from the continent and the diaspora as they sat down with influential leaders and I launched an awareness blog dynamitesmission.com. Launching my web series " Vee Worldwide ' under my own production company has been a high point aswell, you can checkit out here www.youtube.com/veecontent.
