Introducing myself and my journal: ARTISANS AND GLOBAL MARKET

About Me:
I am a social entrepreneur who thrives to create a market for women artisans from developing countries. I founded African Creations in 1998 and ever since prepared women artisans in Africa to reach the global marketplace. They can achieve economic self-sufficiency through their traditional crafts and preserve their cultural heritage. I am currently at Marylhurst University, OR seeking an undergraduate degree in Busines and Leadership.

My Passions:
Changing life for better

My Challenges:
Getting the highest education and the resources to make it happen

My Vision for the Future:
Artisanship Community Leader

My Areas of Expertise:
Marketing and Product Development

Hello and Welcome!

Hi Haoua,

Welcome to the PulseWire community. We are happy to have you here with us. Be sure to check out the Groups section to join groups and find others that share your interests and passions, the Voices Rising section to read other women’s stories, and all the other resources that are here for you. I look forward to hearing from you here on PulseWire and learning more about African Creations. I already went to your website and am very interested in it as I am trying to figure out how to sell products that I brought home from Ghana, mostly items that I got sewn such as bags, oven mitts, and aprons. I look forward to hearing back from you. Once again, welcome to our community!
