The Young African Professionals - DC Network is a nonprofit professioanl organization specifically for Africans in the DMV. The organization provides members with resources and a robust network to enchance their professional development goals. Through in person events, strategic partnerships and now their very own networking platform, YAP DC is able to provide value for its members across the length of their professional career path.
In addition to my online role as the community manager, I have spoken on behalf of YAP at several events. Whether it is leading a panel on moving back to Africa, opening up an event with a bookstore partner or being called to open our networking hour, - I'm able to quickly and succintly advoate on behalf of YAP and liase with out remote team.
