Join Valerie Bowden as she shares her experience backpacking across Africa by herself. During her "Cape to Cairo Route", she was inspired to relocate to Ethiopia where she lived for 8+ years. She is the founder of CRDLE which now does business throughout the continent. If you have ever dreamed of traveling, living, or doing business in African countries, you will not want to miss this event!

The Center for African Studies organizes the Let's Talk Africa series to bring our learning community together to talk about Africa-related matters. It is designed to bring students and faculty together to talk about their experiences studying about or in Africa, doing internships, conducting research about Africa or Africa-related topics, or other learning activities in African Studies. Let's Talk Africa is a forum that allows students and members of the community to talk about Africa's achievements while also exploring challenges and policy solutions.
