#CommonTies | Commonwealth Youth Event CHOGM 2018

What was the event about?

This Wednesday, I attended the #CommonTies event hosted by Commonwealth Youth in London. The aim of the event was to bring together young people across the Commonwealth to learn more about the variety of networks open to young people as well as understand how we can contribute to the Commonwealth and have our voices heard.

#SpotlightSessions - shining the spotlight on everyday people with inspiring stories

This week, I interview Odera Okoye. I first came into contact with Odera after landing on Renowned - a digital platform created by Odera and his brother, Aka, which aims to explore the themes of God, faith, identity and culture through visual storytelling. From the aesthetics and vibe of the blog, I knew that the creative forces behind the site were people to watch out for. At that time, I was aware that Odera and I both attended the same University so I managed to spot him at a random African Caribbean Society event and went on to applaud him for the work he was doing towards Renowned. Since then, he has graduated from King's College London with a BA in English and is on the road to securing a bright future in the creative industry.
