What is African Women Today?

African Women Today is all about sharing your experience as a young woman living abroad and the many complicated stories that comes with it. We want to learn about the lessons you have learned, inspiration stories, hard truths and more!

We are interested in knowing how your skin is so clear, do you date other Africans or not, did you choose to be a ‘creative’ instead of going into STEM, did you decide to start your own business or do you choose to do community work? We want to hear all of those stories and much more! We even want to know what you are listening to or shows you’re loving!
