NaToya from Georgia won a VIP experience to AFROPUNK Atlanta!
After the experience, we caught up with NaToya to hear all about the weekend...
Propeller: How did you find out about Propeller and what type of actions did you complete to earn points towards winning this experience?
NATOYA: I found out about Propeller through a friend who has participated for the past two years. I spent a lot of time watching videos and signing petitions that were listed.
Propeller: What was the highlight of your time at AFROPUNK?
NATOYA: The entire vibe of the festival was the highlight of my experience. There were so many beautiful people just having a good time! Every time that I turned around, there was laughter, dancing and singing.
Propeller: What was your favorite performance and why?
SONJA: MASEGO! I've been wanting to see him perform for a while. He can play just about every instrument and has the most angelic voice. I loved every second of his performance.
Propeller: Which was your favorite part of your time in Atlanta?
NATOYA: I just recently moved to Atlanta, but that weekend it seemed completely different. There was so much love! Smino had pop up shops which were so much fun before heading to the festival each day.
Propeller: Which non-profits at Propeller are most important to you and why?
NATOYA: Equality Now stood out the most to me. Sex trafficking is a terrifying issue that people need to be more aware of. I loved that this organization not only brings awareness to sex trafficking, but also sexual violence and discrimination in laws.
Propeller: Is there anything we could do to improve the experience?
NATOYA: I honestly don't have any suggestions! You were all so amazing! Thanks again for giving me this opportunity.
