Ignorance is bliss [not always]. It's true that the media has tended to focus on the not so positive aspects of Africa, so much that the beautiful things that are happening are furthest away from one's mind. Social Media is connecting these dots. There is an evolution happening [in Africa] that is not really spoken of.
I have always listed Africa & Fashion as my love and inspiration for this blog & all things I do, today I am also carving out the names of those Africans who don't see boundaries or limitations when striving for their dreams. I am adding those that have lived the life I dream to be comfortable living and the world around gets comfortable seeing. Names of young women, older women, of colour [or not]. I am inspired by African Fashion icons, musicians, families of all colour and I realise life is for living, it certainly isn't a rehearsal!
The next blog post will feature the Africans they never show you.... the African icons.
it's faces like these.
