The first time I got connected with Yetunde, I was extremely impressed with her communication skills and compassion towards her clients. Over the past 4 years, I have witnessed Yetunde’s rise and tireless dedication to building brands in her network through her role as a PR Expert. Living in Miami, when Yetunde isn’t talking numbers for clients, she loves to cook and even started her own culinary brand, The Afropolitan Chef.
