A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME AND WHY I AM DOING THIS:


I envision a world where the youth and millennials all over the world use their voices and actually do something about solving the world’s problems. A world where they take their place as the next set of global leaders and embrace their global identities. It is this dream that brought about my mission statement: “Use Your Difference To Make A Difference”. For as long as I can remember I have been between cultures. I was born in Nigeria but shortly after that I moved to Sweden then back to Nigeria before moving on to Burkina Faso, Vietnam, Nigeria, and then the United States.

I have always been on the move

Growing up everywhere as a teenager could have easily giving me a crisis of identity and it did initially but what I quickly came to realize is that there is true beauty in our world. When I say beauty, I don’t mean it in the physical sense. More like the beauty that comes about when we put aside our differences and embrace collaboration. The type of beauty that can come about when a 16 year old in Australia can collaborate with a 14 year old in Kenya and come up with a new type of language learning platform or a new type of affordable prosthetic for wounded veterans.

My travels gave me perspective. I noticed that the reason for a lot of the world’s problems today is because of people’s unwillingness to accept change whether it’s race, religion or ethnic background. Millennials and the youth today are starting to realize this but they need their voices to be heard. That’s why I launched www.uydmedia.com,  It’s all about thinking differently; it’s all about understanding what makes us different and applying that for good.

Millennials care about making a difference and they want to be accurately represented in the media but there are very few verticals which encapsulate the service orientation of millennials as well the true diversity in mindset and worldview they have

My solution is to build a network of digital podcasts that features highly produced, journalistic storytelling focused on millennials, diversity, entrepreneurship and migrants. It’s time for the youth to take their place as the next diplomats, educators and leaders. It’s time for the youth to use their DIFFERENCE to make a DIFFERENCE.

IF YOU'RE UNFAMILIAR WITH MY WORK, HERE'S WHAT I DO:

As Told By Nomads Podcast: As Told By Nomads is a weekly show I host that features interviews with global nomads, Third Culture Kids, and entrepreneurs discussing what it takes to be global leaders.

Hustle Culture Podcast: Hustle Culture is a weekly show I co-host with Carlos Gil that features interviews with entrepreneurs and hustlers from all walks of life going through the climb and trying to make a difference simultaneously.

UYD Media
: A multi media platform that features all sorts of content every day showing the youth all over the world using their difference to make a difference or a unique perspective about what culture is like in different parts of the world.
