On my last day at the BBC before taking a break 4 @columbiajourn, I offered someone a job then emailed everyone at @BBCAfrica without a subject 🤦🏿♂️ I promise I was better at the job itself; hired ~30 people in 5 countries, launched 6 shows in 3 languages & lived our best lives 🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/AxBCmJpFNI
