Mission Behind You X Ashley Akunna (The Grapevine)
Who are you? What do you do?
Ashley Akunna. I am a talk show host, filmmaker, and content producer.
What’s your mission?
My mission is to create innovative visual content for the world to consume. Content that makes people question and think.
Why not just be great at what you do? Why give back?
Life is circular. What you put out, you get back ten fold. When you focus on helping others, your life becomes richer.
What organizations or groups do you feel the closest to and why?
No organization in particular. However, any organization that has a vested interested in community outreach, and self empowerment gets an A in my book.
Are there specific people that had a big influence on your desire to give back, if so who are they and how did they influence you?
Oprah Winfrey. Her legacy will be one of great philanthropic efforts and achievements. It is unmatched.
If you could ask for 3 things in this world what would it be?
As cliche as it sounds, world peace. A communal way of living globally where money is not needed. The man of my dreams. LOL.
What’s your life motto?
If you can't find the light at the end of the tunnel, light that bitch up yourself.
