I am an educator and public relations professional with a cross-cultural lens.
Using strategic communication, deep cultural insights and the power of education,
I leverage research and community building to create strategic public relations campaigns.
Culture is everywhere and people bond over shared beliefs and practices. By truly learning, valuing and harnessing the power of culture, one can fortify communicative practices and move mountains.
Cause is paramount because as you can tell I value leaving the world better than I found it, therefore, purpose and cause driven initiatives have my heart.
I am a staunch believer in the African proverb of "If you want to go fast, go alone; but if you want to go far, go together." The power of community is truly remarkable and by harnessing that communications go much farther.
Sankofa is an African word from the Akan tribe in Ghana and loosely means "to go back and get it." For nothing may move forward without knowing whence it came. I use this ideology as the basis of my research. No endeavor can be successful without acknowledging its origins. Through understanding the past, the trajectory of all initiatives are fortified.
As an educator, I know that every task is different and in order to succeed you must have an arsenal full of tools that are paramount to your success. In the classroom, that may be a hands on manipulative to facilitate tactile learning but as a strategic public relations professional I combine all of my tricks of the trade from various industries to ensure success.
