“there’s no way you can come into my house and tell me not to make a cup of tea”

Noni Muchiri is a modern-day nomad! A "third culture kid" of sorts with her roots firmly planted in Kenya! She's currently a Digital Journalist at BBC Africa and also runs a lifestyle YouTube channel under her name: Muthoni Muchiri. Noni is hella passionate about Africa, it's vibrancy, it's deep culture, it's beauty - even in complex/less ideal scenarios. Her aim is to one day visit every single African country (once Ms. Rona is done with her world tour) and her content has always tried to reflect her love and passion towards what we have to offer the world, not only as a country but also as a continent.

Join us for a conversation on how Noni started on Youtube (12:38), moving back to Kenya (19:24), TikTok (27:17), difference between content creators and influencer (30:23), taking the perfect photo (33:52), working with brands (38:48), removing yourself from negative situations (44.19 and Africans creating for themselves (54:28).
