Sustaining my Travels
Fast forward to 2018, after being a freelance marketer, I set-up my own company, Branded Africa- a service company focused in helping small businesses in Africa with their marketing needs. After Branded Africa, I decided to put up WhileinAfrica- a personal blog that I thought was necessary to share my experiences as a traveler without bias.
