Cómo promuevo diversidad e inclusión en mi trabajo
In promoting diversity and inclusion through tech, I have proudly led projects with Kugali, co-creators of Disney's 'Iwaju' using 3D animation to tell afrofuturistic tales of Africa; as well as leading Snapchat’s best PR campaign of 2022, as listed in, projecting British black athletes at Wembley stadium through AR lens.
