Jake Doe is an independent R&B artist from Lagos, Nigeria. When referencing his upbringing he explains, “it’s a lot harder out here compared to western countries—structure, government, the system is just messed up out here. Young people, youths, do not have the right platforms to use or to make good use of their creativity.” Despite this, his love for where he comes from isn’t diminished. He speaks boldly of the talent that the great continent of Africa possesses, “the world knows Africa for Afrobeats, but it’s not just Afrobeats… we can do almost anything.”
Lia Washington is an Arkansas realtor whose path wasn’t always clear. Lia grew tired of her retail sales job and sought new opportunities in real estate. Change isn’t always easy and Lia was met with adversity, which she now embraces. “My challenges were more so mental.

Experience is honestly the best teacher; no two transactions will be the same.”
