My Black is Transnational

On this episode, Dr. Ibe-Lamberts is joined by Ms. Mmekom Udosen, a future Biomedical scientist and Executive Director of a non-profit organization called, Iban Ifiok. First, we learn a little more about an overlooked tribe in Nigeria, the Ibibio people of Akwa Ibom State. We also discuss her upbringing as a transnational Nigerian American in Queens, NY. Finally, we discuss why she is so passionate about empowering adolescent girls both here and in Africa, addressing  health disparities, and normalizing mental health in African and African  immigrant communities. That and more!
