Cosmocreole is dedicated to Seychellois women and those living overseas with a special connection to our islands. It was launched in July 2020 at the peak of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Our mission is to offer a regular supply of articles, features and inspiration, primarily (but not exclusively) for Seychellois women. We provide insight into a diverse range of issues that truly resonate with the modern woman in Seychelles and beyond and showcase the content from a ‘Seychellois’ point of view from all corners of the world. This platform celebrates women in Seychelles and beyond.
If your curiosity brought you here, Welcome to the community!
