Tales of an African Princess in America

anchor.fm/drozi
I created this podcast because stories are powerful, and by sharing our stories we can learn and grow together. I am really passionate about education for the Girl Child and topics in Career and health. I believe that when people are informed they make better choices. The stories shared on the podcast provide motivation and inspiration, and we know this by all the reviews that we get. I also share the interesting experiences I’ve gained along the way since I moved from Nigeria to America- the good, bad, and the embarrassing.
