EMEKA

No Shame In My Name

Oct 31 2022 • 12 mins

Emeka was born with an innate creative intuition. It’s expressed not only in his career as an industrial designer, but also in the way he acknowledges the power of names. In this episode, listen as he confidently expresses a steady contentment for his Igbo name.

Themes explored:

  • Respecting people by acknowledging their names
  • Education and correction is key
  • The creativity and imagination of parents – in naming
