“I was inspired to write ‘Taboo and Impurity’ by my own experiences growing up in Congo and my academic studies under Dr. Meghan Dougherty,” says Iboumbi. “Through this book, I aim to shed light on the profound influence of Congolese traditions on our understanding of purity and pollution.”

In addition to her literary pursuits, Audrey is currently pursuing a master’s degree in divinity at Grand Canyon University, with aspirations of becoming a pastor in ministry.
