As early as 2007, my eyes began to witness the full potential of our impact through remittances. I remember wondering if there were other members of the Diaspora feeling the same pull to the continent that I was. I was wondering if, like me, they were putting their siblings through higher education or investing in land. The more I wondered, the more I researched, and the more inspired and driven I was. It felt like I was rediscovering a continent I had left almost 20 years earlier as a child.
