A dream deferred is not a dream that's died. The way I felt like a failure when I walked away from my show in 2011 and left #SierraLeone. It felt like I was starting over from nothing. There was no money to show just my videos and the experience. Every year that I wasn't producing was painful. So I stopped thinking about it but I never stopped dreaming about it. I'm here now and the dream has actually evolved.
When I started out there was no one to show me the ropes, no one to teach me, guide me nothing. If I did anything half decent it was because I was just committed to it.
Today my dream is different. I still want to tell stories. I still want to show the continent and our brothers and sisters how I see it and knew #SierraLeone before I learned that we were somebody’s statistic for places not to visit. I still will do that.
But my dream now is to be the teacher I didn't have, the guide I didn't have for young women and men who are starting out like I was a decade ago. To create magic with them that we can all be proud of and to show them that they are magic too.
Everyday I see them light up and they learn something new and their confidence grows. I feel truly blessed to be here. They do my head in and sh!t with their shenanigans but I really love my team.
Each one has a story of their own. A 26-yr old who is head of household for his mom and 3 sisters, and two others from single parent women led family homes and another from a single parent home (she grew up without her mom). Everyone has a story. Everyone has magic.
I love my job.

My grandmother was the first woman to learn how to drive in her village cause she married my grandpa who had graduated from Bo School and then went on to the Police.
I didn't have to marry up to drive.
My father bought this car and gave it to me. My other car in Ghana, my mom bought it and gave it to me. I've never had to buy a car but also cars have never been a marker of anything other than ease of travel for me.
The other day we pulled into a gas station and Augustine told me that this one woman had driven a lot of nice cars. I asked what that meant. He said oh well she has had a lot of boyfriends with nice cars so she has enjoyed in life.
I thought to myself man that's kinda small. Driving a nice car owned by someone else how is that a marker of a good life or that someone has made it?
Today I thought about it again and I tried to imagine why it how it could be so. (Me practicing empathy)
If I wasn't born into a family where both parents had cars. If my grandparents had not had cars. If my grandmother had not ever learned to drive. If my family didn't own a car period like ever how would I view or think of cars. What would they symbolize for me?
Man practicing this #empathy is something oh. Like it changes ones entire perspective. Now I feel like an ass for looking down on someone who thought driving a car is a sign they made it. 🤦🏾♀️ 😩This is not the direction I was hoping to take this caption. 😁Writing is juju. #vickieremoe #sierraleone #stories

Good luck to some 2 million students in #SierraLeone headed back to school. Don't let anything or anyone including urself stand in the way of ur education cuz learning sets u free. It gives u choices-the freedom to be whoever u want, that's what has worked for me. And to the rest of you setting out for the usual weekly grind, God bless our hustle! 🇸🇱❤️🙌🏾 #vickieremoe #freedom
A stand to be corrected but this might be the brunch experience to beat in #sierraleone #sundayfunday #sundaybrunch #vickieremoe #travelblogger #love

Nobody is going to give you the power sis, we just have to take it, and own it! #saturdayvibes #sierraleone #vickieremoe
Every day millions of girls and women have their periods and no one throws petals at our feet, acknowledges that we are celestial beings. Instead we feel shame and are made to feel shame. A 14-year-old girl in #Kenya committed suicide this week because a teacher shamed her for bleeding through. This is the world we live in. Unacceptable
”When I would come back home to Accra my mom would look at me and nods her head. Every time she hears a whimper of an opportunity that doesn't pan out I hear her deep mothering sighs. Other times I see her looking at me from the corner of my eye as I type away on my laptop. I can read her mind. I know what she is thinking. ”When will all this work pay off?” There is something about not being a traditional salaried worker that I think will always make our parents wonder if this alternative path of entrepreneurship really is for us. Especially during the harder days when things are needed that you can not provide.” - #newblogpost - link in bio 👆🏾#createyourownluck #business #marketing #branddevelopment #sowseeds #sierraleone #ghana #vickieremoe #women #makerswomen
