The place to Explore Benin and its Culture
My name is Leila Abdoulaye. Born and raised in Benin,West Africa, I moved to New York City in 1999 after winning a competition named Top Model Afrique. I had a successful career in the fashion industry but wanted more so, I’ve decided to start a career in Integrated Marketing with a specialization on Digital. I am currently earning my Masters Degree at NYU and I love every second of it.
I am proud of where I come from and my goal is to share through Unseen Benin, the true virtue of my country and the beauty and richness of it culture and people. I believe that are many beautiful and undiscussed parts as well as very important lost history that aren’t discussed in the Media. In addition, I hope through this blog, readers are able to see Africa as it is nowadays from a standpoint of a citizen. This won’t only be for Benin but also for all Africans that are proud of their heritage.
Last but not least, I encourage everyone reading to comment, share their thoughts and give me their feedbacks. I welcome and appreciate any love and support from all my readers and followers.
