Celebrating my Co-Founder

This last weekend in Kampala, Uganda we celebrated the marriage of my Arielle for Africa LTD Co-Founder, Feruz Semere.  She was the most beautiful bride and it was an honor to be there for her big day.  Part of being a Co-Founder is understanding how much weight that title carries. Most may take that relationship for granted but letContinue reading “Celebrating my Co-Founder”
