Effusion Africa: The Women 2.1 Summit Introduction Film 

My friend, former co-worker the creator of "Women Now," Benjamin Gregory Aggrey honored me with an invitation to attend his initial summit. Benjamin's idea for the conference revealed the purpose of  transformation and change for women in Africa and became the "WOMAN 2.1 Summit." He wanted to change Africa one women at a time by helping them to thrive into adulthood. My response to his invitation was to introduce the summit on film and Benjamin said "Yes."  The film was made and Benjamin edited the clip used for the introduction.Ultimately, I was there in Kumasi supporting Benjamin to inspire the lives of women in Africa and consequently the world.
