Episode Overview

“Wait! The best piece of advice that I’ve been given is to be patient with myself, and with the things that I hope for.”

Eposi Litumbe describes herself as ‘Cameroonian born, American raised, World Citizen and seasoned traveler’.

By day, Eposi is a scientist working in medical research.  By night, she’s a film producer and content creator, including having a travel web series focused on sharing the beauty of Africa.

Eposi shares how these two seemingly very different roles are her life’s passion.  Through science, she gets to positively impact medicine in her work as a clinical researcher.  And through her travel series, she gets to tell a different narrative about the African continent.

She is the producer of the web travel series ‘JANU with Eposi’, which is focused on “getting to know the people, places and cultures of Africa.”
