Women in travel
When I started my career in travel many years ago, many people told me that I’m crazy. How can a young woman travel by herself around African countries? That thought never scared or deterred me, I was more curious than anything to see our amazing continent and document it through my eye.
I know for a fact there are other women and girls like me in the world and want to help show them that it is possible to make a career out of doing what you love despite what people say. I think that has to be something that is constantly in your head, to not care what people think and do things the way you want to, to fulfill your dreams.
One of my dreams was creating an online art gallery to show people around the world what beauty we have in Africa, from the landscapes and people to the tiniest of plant details and vast oceans and rivers. We recently took a leap and introduced other artists to the site to grow it even more and I love that I am showcasing like minded women who share my African dream.
African artwork will continue to grow and search for new and upcoming female photographers who love Africa as much as we do. We hope that you will continue to support us and empower young women around the world.
