Akinseye Quinones 

Co-President | 283

My goal for Afrocentric has always been to create a space where people from unique cultures and backgrounds like mines can have a platform to share that through whatever creative means possible. A writer myself, I am committed to creating great magazines that everyone in the Central community can have access to and enjoy creativity from an Afrocentric perspective.
