As Anne says: “Our parents [and, in some cases, grandparents] were the pioneers of the global African, most having left their homes to pursue higher education. We are beneficiaries of their struggle to ensure our access to education and opportunity and, as such, I feel as though we have the obligation to be bolder, more creative, more innovative in how we express ourselves and in how we represent the continent. I will always consider myself an Afropolitan. It’s not a geographic construct, but a state of mind.”
