In this week's episode, I chat with media specialist and artist, Freddy Detchou, aka Super Freddy. We chat about Freddy’s journey abroad to various countries including Canada where he currently resides. We discuss the language conflict in Cameroon, his home country, how he pivoted fields between undergraduate and graduate studies, and how he got started making music. Finally, Freddy reminds us of the importance of slowing down as a form of self-care.
Freddy was born in Canada to Cameroonian parents and spent time in Canada, the United States, Tunisia, and the United Kingdom. He completed an undergraduate degree in Political Science with a minor in African Studies at McGill University. He then went on to pursue a master's degree in Media Practices for Development and Social Change at the University of Sussex in the UK. He currently works at Bell as a Media Specialist. He is also the co-founder and a recording artist with Ice-Coast Entertainment.
