Editor's Message

#SELFCARE is my message this month. We would like to guide you on how to take better care of yourself—your mental health and your skin. Take it upon yourself, to be kinder to yourself, putting YOU first and looking after yourself. If you continue to do so each day, you will feel much better and be there fully with confidence for the people who need you the most—at home or work. Remember, #selfcare is love, confidence, happiness, optimism, resilience and a movement; a movement that we should all join. Creating this online platform for women like myself has brought me so much fulfilment and happiness. The women I’ve worked with have inspired me greatly and I have learnt so much from them—all Seychelloise and from all corners of the world. I hope that you have been inspired by someone's story or journey too. On this note, I would like to say thank you for being part of Cosmocreole’s journey so far. You have been amazing!

Ask Cynthia

By Cynthia Hip-Waye

I am very excited to be part of the Cosmocreole family, and I am looking forward to answer your questions. You probably want to know a little bit more about me. Since 15 years of age, I knew exactly what I wanted to do - helping people with psychological and emotional problems. It started off with a 3-year scholarship in England in 1991 to do my Bachelor Honours in Psychology. After working in Seychelles for a few years, I was fortunate to get a scholarship to achieve my dream of becoming a Clinical Psychologist by doing a Master's degree at Macquarie University in Australia. ...CONTINUE
