Like many people, the holiday season is a time for us all at #TeamKQ to recharge and spend time with those we love near and far. Senior account executive, Kinnawa Kaitibi, traveled across the Atlantic Ocean for his first trip to Sierra Leone, his family home. While there, he had the opportunity to reconnect with family members he hadn't seen in years like his Grandma Matu who helped raise him, meet new family members, and visit the villages where his parents grew up, Moyamba and Taiama.
“I felt like I gained a new appreciation for hard work and consistency during my trip,” says Kinnawa. It was such an eye-opening and heartwarming experience to see not only where my parents are from, but also what trials they had to overcome for my siblings and me to have the life we have in America.”
During his trip, Kinnawa filmed a documentary to capture every special moment and give potential viewers a different perspective of Sierra Leone and Africa as a whole.
We look forward to seeing the documentary when it’s ready to share!
