My Show with Pamela Stitch from SARFM Radio
To check out my African Loft page where I will be uploading this interview, please visit: Masmilele African Loft Page.
I will also upload this interview to the Displaced African media and press releases page.
Highlights from the Show
1) I spoke about why I wrote the article, the Empty Symbol that is Barrack Obama and go into more depth about that article.
2) We talked about why we as African people don’t record and share our successes as much as we could.
3) What is the tall poppy syndrome?
4) Are we as African people humble with our success?
5) Should we as African folks share success with each other or be humble with our successes while we are abroad?
6) I give a small example of the power of sharing successes with each other.
7) “I’ll do me and you just do you” vs “I am because we are”
Tips for recording and sharing your successes with others.
9) Tips for someone who has just arrived in the diaspora on how they can immediately get a job.
10) How to get a job when you finish college and you want a nice, solid career job instead of a minimum age job.
11) Would I recommend that people go into the welfare system?
Overall, I think it was a good show. I SPOKE SLOWER! And I also feel I gave a lot more useful information than in my previous interviews.
I still have a lot of growing to do in this area but let me send a lot of thanks and love to Pammy of SARFM, the folks at African Loft and everyone who has featured me in their media and will do so in future. As it would be said in Kiswahili:
