Felicia Apprey Agyare is the founder of The African LIFE. The African LIFE is a multifaceted organization focused on bridging the gap between the children of the diaspora and the continent of Africa. TAL mission is to provide a platform that tells Africans their real stories that helps the world connect to Africa. The L3C company provides a platform through PR services, events, sponsorship, and community outreach.
The African LIFE has provided platforms and services for organizations such as Africa International House, The African Festival of the Arts, Ghana National Council for GhanaFest, Ethiopian Community Association of Chicago (ECAC) for Ethiopia Fest, United African Organization, Black Fashion Week USA, The Chicago South Side Film Festival and many small businesses. Her most proud moment was arranging for her tribe to be featured on a segment on ABC News, WGN, WCIU The Jam, and NBC to talk about Ghanaian culture including displaying Ghanaian food, dances, and fashion.
Apprey-Agyare is a first-generation born Ghanaian on the southside of Chicago. She was then sent to Ghana at three months to be raised by her grandparents until she was ten years old to help her parents get settled in America. Upon returning, she struggled to find her identity. It was not until college until she realized that she should be proud of her culture and it was up to her to build the bridge to her ancestors and her future generations. She has dedicated TAL to making sure other American born Africans use their knowledge, experience and to connect to the diaspora, Africa and the world and share their stories so they can help maintain their heritage as it is crucial to their existence. She is set to officially launch The African LIFE Tours this year to provide quality customized tours to Africa.
