Dakar, Senegal

Living in Dakar with a Griot family, I was in heaven, playing music and dancing all night, strolling the markets by day, designing outfits with the family tailors… I fell in love with the Senegalese spirit. I learned so much from the women I lived with in Senegal. Their strength put so much into perspective for me. They taught me how to say “no” with love and good spirit, and they taught me how to say “yes” even when I wanted to say “no”.
