Abdullah Verachia challenges the TEDxEuston community with his insight on how Africa can actively forge its own way by disrupting the status quo. He urges us not to get caught up in the hype of disruption, but to truly create an African future in our image. He then ends his talk with a heartfelt love letter to the Continent that naturally earned him a standing ovation from the TEDxEuston audience. Watch, be inspired and moved to your core!
