Series: Start LOUD With Why

Next up in the “Start loud with WHY” series – Queracia Jacobs shares her journey with SAIS.

Starting from being a student volunteer to currently playing a vital role in building the innovation narrative of the African entrepreneurship ecosystem as a Digital Marketer and Content Creator.

Passion comes from the heart, not the head.

Immediately after Queracia started volunteering at SAIS, she naturally connected herself with the mission of SAIS – shaping the Africa Rising Narrative through entrepreneurship. Dive into her story and discover how Queracia ties what she does every day at SAIS to her passion.

Remember to keep following us through this series as we unpack our WHY’s and also discover WHY’s from our community members that we hope you will be able to relate to and learn things about your WHY.
