Enuma Okoro is Using Writing To Correct Global Stereotypes About Africa.
Enuma Okoro is culturally intelligent and we find that very inspiring. With a professional background in Psychology, Communication, Public Speaking and Theology, through writings focused on African Diasporas, Identity and Belonging, Culture and Narratives, Spiritual formation, Growth and Holistic Wellness she is correcting global stereotypes of Africa.
She has authored four non- fiction books and her writings have been published on NPR, in The New York Times, The Atlantic Monthly, The US/UK Guardian, CNN, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post and Quartz Africa.
She is passionate about creating content and on days she is not working on a book or writing essays and articles, editing speeches, drafting and editing client documents or creating unique content for organisations, then she is running in heels as a strategic communications consultant, speaking and moderating panels on national and international corporate platforms on issues bordering on but not limited to identity, the global perceptions of multicultural women, and the power of cultural narratives.
In 2017, Enuma spoke at the historic American Church in Paris. She is the second black person after Martin Luther King Jr (in 1965) and the first black woman to have achieved that feat. As a polyglot and passionate student of diverse environments, she uses her unique cultural experiences to highlight the beauty embedded in culture and also sells Africa to the world.
Apart from authoring Celebrating Chinua Achebe, Silence, Reluctant Pilgrim: A Moody Somewhat Self-Indulgent Introvert’s Search for Spiritual Community, Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals, At The Still Point: A Literary Guide to Prayer in Ordinary Time, Talking Taboo: American Christian Woman Get Frank About Faith; Enuma is currently working on her first fiction book.
We definitely cannot wait. Go girl!
