I studied Education in Economics and French; while in university I began to engage in entrepreneurship.
"Shortly after a career as an Economist at the World Bank, I immediately became restless about the unsustainable direction of development in Africa. So I decided to leave and start Wazawazi, in 2012."
I believe that the change in Africa must be driven by creation of employment by progressive Africans on the ground with a passion for the development of the African continent - Africans crazy enough to think that they can change things.
"My mission is to tell the story of modern day Africa. Our ethically and sustainably produced design-driven products are an expression of my conviction as a cultural ambassador." I am committed to inclusion and diversity and these are part of the brand's ethos - being a socially responsible modern global African lifestyle company.
"I am on a mission; to mobilize existing creative communities to power scalable and sustainable business for the society we exist in and I believe that's my duty."
I challenge everyone to this question: "What are you doing about Africa today?"
