Before the 2018 Africa Summit For Women And Girls In Technology, the last time I crossed a border was in 2013. Suffice to say, when the time came for my first trip to Accra, Ghana, I was ecstatic. My mother and I stayed at the Labadi Beach Hotel, the same place where Web Foundation and A4AI hosted their 2018 summit.

As a digital content producer, I welcome the challenge of producing travel content in an unfamiliar place. However, the best part had to be producing content alongside the Web Foundation team! The last time I produced on the spot content was at Oppikoppi music festival, which is a total shift from a summit/conference setting. I documented my experience of the 2018 Africa Summit For Women And Girls In Technology via Instagram under the #TechWomenAfrica highlight. On the second day, I had a realization; being around other techies, and being in spaces where blogging isn’t so meaningless, made be proud to call myself a blogger.
