Esperance Ndombe aka Espe | Digital Marketing Manager|California, USA
Welcome to my about me page. It’s a pleasure to introduce myself. My name is Esperance but I also go by Espe, sounds like an “SP”. I was born in Rhode Island and raised in New Hampshire in the Northeast region called New England. I went to college in Durham, NH at the University of New Hampshire, studied Recreation Management & Policy with minors in Business Administration & Hospitality Management. In summer 2011, I decided I wanted to move to California for AmeriCorps and found myself in volunteer-community service for two years in Watsonville, CA.
I love the area so much, I lived in Santa Cruz for 2 years, and fell in love with a Salvadorean man while living together in Aromas, CA. I’ve been living in the country-rural life for 6 years and probably for another two years. A lot has been happening around the world but the ones that struck me the most were the killings of my brother’s and sister’s, not relative, but my people, my African-American people struck by outrageous police force brutality, and sadly lost their lives. It pains me to see this happening in our lifetime and the majority of the police officers get indicted, showing no accountability for their flagrant actions on human life.
Even in life, I’ve always lived as an African-American woman, and I never saw or identify myself as Black or People of Color, which is what the majority of my race identifies with Black, Blackness, or People of Color. I want to help empower those Black-Americans who identify with Black to transform their race mentality to Afro/African-American. To love, say, write, describe yourself in the Afro/African-American context. The majority are still in the Black context.
I’m a full-time digital marketer working as a freelancer and on my own projects with Black 2 Afro, Wild 4 Bamboo, and Earthian Digital Marketing. I received my master’s degree in Digital Marketing from Concordia College and gaining experience by freelancing on Upwork in April of 2020. Keeping in touch with your customers and audience base depend on valuable content presented to keep them engaged with your brand. I develop step-by-step digital marketing guidance, advice, and consultations to clients needing digital marketing.
I also love cooking, playing and watching sports: mostly soccer, basketball, and track & field, making chili sauces, watching car racing, snowboarding, hiking, camping, the outdoor life, studying languages: Spanish, French, and travelling. I love to cook West African food, American food, Mexican & Central American, and Chinese food are my favorites. Besides being a cook, I love to dance, watch action/comedy/drama movies, gardening, and having a good time on planet Earth.
Until next time,
Esperance “Espe” Ndombe
