Welcome to our July Issue which marks our 5th Anniversary. It’s been a wonderful journey working on this magazine, so many lessons and growth and its hard to imagine that it’s been 5 years already.
We would not have made it this far without you. Thank you for all the support, encouraging words and the feedback you give us. This is just the beginning, we look forward to more issues and more years of growing as a community and serving monthly inspiration.
For this special issue we collaborated with Paris based Cameroonian art director, beauty and commercial fashion photographer, Mario Epanya for our cover shoot.
In our main feature ‘Carving a Voice Out in Global Media’ (pg.20), our writer Iman Folayan reflects on the past five years highlighting some of our best stories and issues we’ve covered.
We have more inspiration, including an interview with the McBride sisters who have conquered a male dominated industry as the first two African American sisters to start a wine company. We also talk to makeup artist Stella Bangura about her involvement with The Survivor Dream Project that is aimed at capturing and sharing to the world a different story of strength, courage, hope of the women who survived Ebola.
We’ve also put together our monthly gift guide featuring African inspired brands for every budget and season. Hope you enjoy this issue and share it with your network of friends. Until next time, I leave you with this African saying, “ If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
