Last year, while living in Accra, I met the dynamic Saran Koly, editor-in-chief of Fields Magazine, a bilingual (French/English) contemporary African publication focused on alternative reflections on international affairs, human rights, arts and social justice. In Saran, I immediately found a kindred spirit. Through Fields, she hopes to build a community of "global daydreamers" stretching across Africa and the diaspora.
I'm honored to be a part of the team of writers contributing to Fields' "Design Issue" which takes readers from Brazil to Colombia via Burkina Faso, Ghana, South Africa, Senegal, and the U.S. " to explore the stories of makers who decided to live their life by design and not by default."
P.S. Watch this space in the next few weeks for a link to an episode of Fields' "Migrant Talks" series with Nargisse Benbakkou of My Moroccan Food (which I proudly co-produced).
