Editor's Message

Creativity is such an interesting process, don’t you think? I will always be marvelled by the ways in which an idea becomes a reality. Creating this online magazine has brought me so much fulfilment. The other women I’ve worked with have inspired me greatly- all Seychelloise and from all corners of the world. I hope you love what we’ve curated for you and take immense pleasure in reading the content. We have room to grow, and I am counting on you to help us on that journey of growth. On behalf of the whole team, I offer you the warmest welcome to Cosmocreole! You can properly meet the team HERE.
