Concrete Pastures Podcast

Nancy Mulemwa Siisii

The word immigrant to so many like me, it signifies someone with a dream; a dreamer. I am Nancy Mulemwa Siisii. I was born and raised in Zambia, Africa, but I later migrated to America and settled in New York where I’ve been living for 20 years. As a dreamer, I have and continue to have a passion for making substantive bonds with audiences, and helping to inspire people to reach for their dreams. Being an immigrant has been one of the most challenging and extraordinary experiences of my life. It inspired me to start my podcast “Concrete Pastures: An African Immigrant Story” as a platform to reach out to fellow immigrants and dreamers. read less

S4 Ep16 Agnes Appiah- The Messenger of Hope and Triumph
Agnes Appiah is a multidisciplinary creative and entrepreneur. She is an outstanding emcee, voiceover artist, and spoken word artist. She hosts the Umami Conversations podcast and recently co-authored the book 55 Faces to raise awareness of women's role in social change and impact. Despite spending her first few decades in fear, she now uses her life experiences as a message of hope and triumph.  After the loss of her unborn son in 2019, she prioritized her mental health and no longer pleases others at the expense of her own well-being. Agnes' favorite quote is from Maya Angelou, "Still I Rise," and you can find her meditating or dancing to old school dancehall songs.  She is now a mother to a toddler and enjoys spending time in his presence as she learns about her new role as a mother.  Agnes is continually growing and building her brand.
