Show Notes

From  Lawyer to children's book author Yeve Chitiga is not new to challenges.  Yeve is a multi talented native of Zimbabwe, Public Speaker, and founder of Philisa Creatives, a media company that celebrates and amplifies African Heritage.
In this amazing conversation Yeve shares her journey as well as the struggles she faced after having her 1st child and looking for books that represented her heritage. Black and African only make up 5.8% of authors. With these statics Yeve decided she would do something about it. She wrote her first children's book My First Book Of Shona & Ndawana Words that represents the difference in cultural between her and her husband.
This conversation is about coming together and daring to go beyond the dream but to take action. Sometimes in life we are called to do hard things. Find courage in Yeve's words as you dare to live unapologetically. Join in the conversation by going over to my IG and share your experiences I would love to hear your story. https://www.instagram.com/thyme4teawithmikita/
