Meet the Guest 

Destin local Zhalman Harris joins us on the Hello Frances Podcast this week. A former rapper, actor, writer, and photographer with Destin VIP Magazine, his biggest role is founder and president of Aletha’s Legacy, a nonprofit organization founded to give underprivileged children in Liberia and Africa hope and a chance to better education. Zhalman immigrated to the United States 20 years ago, and at the time he was convinced he would never step foot on his home continent ever again. 

Cliff Notes 

Ten years after living and working in the United States, Zhalman started to get the urge to visit Liberia again, specifically a school owned by his family that his grandfather started many years ago. After this visit, Zhalman knew that his calling was to create Aletha’s Legacy and make the school a successful, thriving environment for the country’s youth to prosper. His intention is to provide them with a safe space so that they can break their country’s vicious cycle and recognize their full potential in the world.
