Event Description

Theme: Representing Africa: Redefining Contemporary Africa.
About this Event
This is the first African Development Conference at Cornell University. We believe at SOSA that it is our responsibility to present Africa in a new light, reflective of the beauty, opportunity, and excellence of our continent and not the grotesque ones portrayed of war, conflict, hunger and suffering which is a biased representation. Hence, we created this conference to help address such issues and bring us Africans together.

The Cornell Scholars in Our Society and Africa(SOSA) seeks to present Africa in a new light, reflective of the beauty, opportunity, and excellence of our continent. We believe that through discourse and active engagement it is possible to change the narrative often portrayed of war, conflict, and hunger. SOSA will begin to organize hopefully an annual conference on Cornell University’s campus to unite the youth interested in entrepreneurship, medicine, women empowerment, technology, and development in Africa as a whole.

Therefore, Scholars in Our Society and Africa present to you the 2019 Cornell African Development Conference: Re-Presenting Africa.

About the event organizer

S.O.S.A's goal and mission are to enrich growing minds in underprivileged societies. We have made it our responsibility to aid and provide societies that are educationally deprived with materials, i.e. various subject textbooks, storybooks, etc. It is our belief that he who does not know can know from learning. We hope to enlighten and change the views of education in various societies and to expose the advantages and merits of having a good education.

We hope to spread far and wide across the world to speak on behalf of our experiences and to help others in their journeys to achieve the gift of knowledge.
