Desiree

Start-up WeekendLast week was DEMO Africa. It is the biggest gathering in the African Tech Space. I was engaged at the iHub so I couldn’t attend. For me it was an opportunity to re-connect with old friends.

First off I am the guy wearing the suit. Desiree is the lady beside me. I first met her in September at Start-up Weekend in Nigeria. She is one of the few female programmers that I respect.

In 2012, I would leave Nigeria to Ghana and she would later leave to the UK. DEMO Africa brought her to Kenya and I have been here for the last 63 days because of Savannah Fund.

It was nice meeting someone I knew before I left Nigeria. Back of that is the possibility of reunion with my own family. Desiree has since returned to Lagos.

The possibility of a reunion with loved ones keeps a warrior fighting to return home.
