Amarachi is a Nigerian-American audio/technical producer and digital storyteller. She has a keen eye and ear for calling out inequities, and calling-in subjective objectivity. Raised in rural Eastern North Carolina by an African-American mother and Nigerian father and educated in urban, central North Carolina, her cross-cultural upbringing shapes how she narrates at the crossroads of identity politics, health disparities, and pop culture.
She is a 'fragmented whole' that has spent the past decade sojourning the United States, Europe, and Sub-Saharan Africa striving to make sense of herself and the world around her. She has utilized her innate empathic nature and cultural sensitivity as tools for exploration and critical thinking, in order to investigate how historically marginalized communities have persisted despite systemic and institutional disparities.
She obtained her B.A. with honors in African and Afro-American studies from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She earned her Masters of Science in Public Health from the University of South Carolina-Columbia. Grounded in social justice, Amarachi is also a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
