"For me, one of the core missions is I don't want to leave this earth having people talk about the continent of Africa in the same way that they did when I grew up, when I was younger. And if I have a chance to change that then I need to be here at my desk doing that work every single day to do what I can." ~Dr. Uzodinma Iweala
Let me say a little about our feature for the month of July – Dr. Uzodinma Iweala, the son of Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nigeria’s former Minister of Finance. Dr. Iweala is more than just the son of Nigeria’s former Minister of Finance; he is the founder and CEO of the Africa Center, located on Fifth Avenue, New York, NY.
