In February, Kangai from Kenya, Maggie and myself from Rwanda travelled to Lagos to join #TeamNigeria to attend Social Media Week Lagos. This means that it was the first time that fellows from the three cohorts joined forces to create content. And it was a lot of fun!
It seems crazy to think that all the friendships we made started from videoconference classes that we attended. Having that said I’ve always been in awe seeing aKoma’s co-founder Chidi calling us out through the screen, just like a real class to share an opinion. I got caught once texting and like a high school girl I didn’t know what to say for myself.
But now, being physically all in the same room made us reach another level of affinity and ongoing commitment to aKoma. If meeting #TeamKenya the month before was awesome, doing collectively some work with fellows was enriching, as we have a lot to learn from each other.
Let’s do it again SWM Nairobi! This is just an idea …
