Chidiogo Akunyili is the Founder of She ROARs – Reimagining Our Africa Rising — empowering women across Africa to unleash their full potential and that of the continent. Her philosophy is founded on the humanist African concept of Ubuntu — ‘I am because you are. You are because we are’ — upholding and celebrating our shared humanity. She draws from over 10 years of professional experience in Community building; Business development; Intercultural dialogue; Sino-African relations & Strategy consulting having lived and worked across Africa, the Middle East, Asia, North America and Europe. Chidiogo speaks 7 of the world’s languages including Chinese, English, French, German, Igbo, Italian and Spanish — invaluable tools that bridge lives, people and their global realities.
This is a different type of conversation for the podcast, but a powerful one. Kathryn had been following Chidiogo online for some time and knew that they would have a great discussion about intuition, empowerment, life and of course the role of movement. Chidiogo talks about how she followed her gut and moved away from the corporate world, how she founded She Roars, and why she started writing a book. She talks about supporting women of colour and how feeling your own power changes everything. She also talks about her experience learning languages and how she never felt that she would excel because of the way she was introduced to language. Through this conversation they talked about teaching methods and how being with an effective teacher makes all the difference. Finally they spoke about movement and how participating in movement practices prepares us for life in many ways.
