June greetings Glocal Citizens! We're nearly halfway through "the year after" and in the spirit of reimagining spaces and places for our new next, my guest this week is all about personal development.

SESA is a space, a resource to assist others find answers, guidance and advice to make the life game more enjoyable. She has also served as Business Club Manager at AFFORD straddling continents to add value for businesses in the UK and Africa.

Fun fact about Elvina, she is also known as "Auntie Vina" and she hosts a story telling channel. She started the channel to share her love for children's books and the amazing journeys the imagination can take little people. She chooses books that focus on black children or are written by black authors. She also includes books that show a diversity of race, culture, religion, gender roles, health and life experiences and so much more, because our little people deserve so much more than just one way of looking at this big wide world.
