Ep 190. Connected To Culture – Embracing The Diaspora with Akua Tay

This week I had the pleasure of speaking with Akua Tay of Connected to Culture about the services she provides tourists who want to visit her family’s home country of Ghana. Akua told us of her experience of the familiarity of the people of Ghana, alongside the constant reminders of her still being a foreigner. Navigating building a home overseas, while finding ways to give back to the communities of Ghana, this episode touches on so many things. Dive in.
