Feature of Ambassador Akinyemi Farounbi for Bravo Filipino
I had the pleasure of taking the portraits of his Excellency Akinyenmi Farounbi and his wife Evelyn Farounbi of Nigeria.
Here’s an excerpt from “Building Bridges” by Hannah Jo Uy:
“It is a truly lovely country,” says Ambassador Farounbi, “filled with nice people, warm people, and very passionate people. They know how to laugh and smile; they know how to quickly recover.”
His Excellency Akinyemi Farounbi, ambassador of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to the Philippines have only been in the Philippines since July of 2012. Yet, their energy and efforts to better the life of Filipino people have already elicited such profound effects.
