There’s so many amazing fresh young minds in Africa that need nourishment from outside.“There’s a new generation forming and I feel like they need those of us who have left and made money in the west – they need our help.“I met so many young amazing kids in Rwanda when I went back and they just had so many amazing ideas – great entrepreneurial minds.
