Hi I’m Judie a.k.a Jay Tessie, I’m a Sagittarius, which means I’m very stubborn and extremely creative. I’ve never been one to follow the norm and I try to steer away from traditions. I was born to Rwandan Parents who like any immigrant story moved to the United States in search of a better life and good education for their children. Watching their struggles inspired me to create a platform for Immigrants to share their story of their pursuit of happiness to make sure others don’t have to face the same obstacles.
Hi I’m Eric a.k.a Cado. I grew up around the world and by the age of 19 had visited more than 10 countries. I've always admired the work ethic across the different cultures I lived in and one thing specifically drew me in. Every culture and region had game changers, innovators and bold dreamers that impacted their societies. Their stories were fascinating and made me want to share them someday. Well, the opportunity arose to start a podcast and here I am sharing the stories of African immigrants and those in the African diaspora and loving every minute of it.
