I remember when I got the email confirming i had been shortlisted for the Journey. The joy was immeasurable and I had nothing but great expectations for the Journey and how it would benefit Farmspace Africa. We had been keen on accessing the US Diaspora market for a while but did not know how best to go about it, until GIST happened!
The connections made, the amazing moments with fellow entrepreneurs, and the inspiring moments with successful mentors and speakers was simply out of this world. Would I do it again? Yes, yes and yes!!
I can only hope to make the GIST and CRDF Global team proud by spreading this entrepreneurship spirit to my community back home and seeing my business grow to greater heights! I will surely miss this amazing family!
