Of Coffee With Stephing Out Loud #2018BOTY

If you were having coffee with me I would tell you its Day 15 of 25 days blogmas celebrating highlight moments of the year #2018BOTY

If you were coffee with me, I would tell you that earlier this year, I met someone I have been friends with, for what feels like forever….

Stephanie Kapfunde #Stephingoutloud

She used to be a radio personality at a local radio station and I would tune in to her show from 6 to 9pm and tweet about it for the radio shout outs and well just to let them know someone was out there listening

If you having coffee with me I would tell you this tweet may or may not have been a story about falling in love with a voice on the radio and falling asleep to the sound of their voice.

Almost six years later we ran into each other at FVDN’s  Creative Hack where she was one of the speakers….

If you were having coffee with me I would tell you Stephanie Kapfunde used to speak for a living and now she is a digital storyteller using New Media to help generations of young Africans to identify themselves while conceptualising Internet based ideas for brands to relate to a growing Afrollennial Market through people, places and experiences.

Thats how her profile reads !!!!! She is doing the things, with Enthuse Afrika with a K

Its strange how we never met all these years even though we seem to move in almost the same circles, maybe the universe was waiting for the world to get ready.

I hope you laced up its about to get interesting

If you were having coffee with me I would tell you that I also met her again and the Enthuse team because they were working on the Connect.Hubs project by British Council Zimbabwe and Hivos Southern Africa with training led by NESTA, and support from Electric South , Enthuse Afrika and Young Blood Africa, when 22 Creatives Hubsters met and connected

If you were having coffee with me I would tell you the future looks like collaborations 

Compliments of the festive season

    Sometimes these things don’t seem to happen until they’re ‘meant’ to, so-to-say.

  2. Hey Beaton. You know, I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who I met and got to know only via the internet. I do have a friend, a female one, who I joke with about how I feel much more comfortable as a virtual verses physical friend. She and I grew up living near each other and our lives wove in and out of each others until we got married and then we hardly spoke until getting reacquainted several years ago. I like to tease her how it was me who her father chose to take her out for her first date, alone in a car, for her 16th birthday and how it was a cover to get her out of the house so her friends could gather for a surprise party – then how I decided to give her her first kiss on her front porch while everyone waited inside to scream surprise. She claims she didn’t see any of it coming and was left completely flummoxed by it all. Such a great memory.

    I’d love to meet you sometime though. We could do some hard core laughing at how life is working out for us.

    Blessings and hopes for a great Christmas for you and your family.
