Anita Otchere (Presenter/editor a Africa Web TV) was born in Nairobi, Kenya and moved to the Netherlands with her parents at the age of two. She grew up in the multicultural city of The Hague and has always been surrounded by a group of friends whose diversity resembles the United Nations. As a daughter of parents who had a passion for traveling, Anita picked up the travel bug and has visited many places all over the globe. Because of this, Anita feels like a child of the globe with her home always in her heart wherever she goes. She has lived in Brussels, Malaga and Barcelona as a part of her studies and she would not mind relocating elsewhere if the opportunity presented itself. Her biggest passion is discovering new cuisines, the weirder the better and she loves meeting new people. Next to her day job and her work for Africa Web TV, Anita is an entrepreneur at heart and has had many interesting ventures. Her most recent is a boxing course for women. In the near future she would like to get involved with social entrepreneurship going back to her roots by partnering with local businesses in Kenya. It is Anita’s personal mission to make a positive lasting contribution to the current narrative about Africa. Through the power of storytelling, she aspires to intrigue people to welcome the unknown and get to know more about Africa through a different lens.
