My name’s Annette. As a 20 something African girl working in the city, I created this space as an outlet for a few of my passions – Africa, business & writing… As part of the African diaspora, I’ve always felt it was important to play my part in the promotion and development of the continent, especially in a part of the world where the narrative isn’t always complimentary.

This blog will focus on the sub – Saharan region and include entries considering business trends, entrepreneurship and current affairs, reviews and interviews. Overall, this space will be an outlet for my opinions and hopefully where anyone interested in the region can keep updated on its development.

Please do get in touch for any collaborations, promotions and contributions.
