Building a startup is tough. Building a startup without great, passionate, talented, and committed people is impossible. That’s why we are so excited to welcome Dr. Anna van Brakel to Fezah. Fezah App is entertainment’s booking app available through Google Play, with over 150 musicians, bands, DJs, and MCs from Uganda and Kenya. With a crazy passion for the creative industry and a PhD in Psychology from Maastricht University – Netherlands, Anna joins us as Director – Internationalization & Mentorship Programs.
About Mentorship: “My main professional mission is to give everyone a chance to become the best version of themselves. It all comes down to identity, more so to authenticity. Authenticity is a hard bullet to bite for many people because everyone loves to belong to a group, a circle. We find ourselves living according to someone else’s expectations, or in the creative context creating according to someone else’s expectations. But to be outstanding you need to be authentic. This is what we want for every Fezah artist.” – Anna van Brakel
As we continue to build the tools and networks to get our artists onto more stages, internationalization is an important focus for us. Anna will work with us to improve our portfolio’s international booking readiness, and to help our artists gig beyond their borders.
Help us give Anna a warm Fezahrian welcome!
