Head-wraps in Cote d’Ivoire aren’t just about religion, but also about fashion and beauty. In fact, the practice of head-wrapping came before some religions in my region, because women were protecting their heads from the sun, and blocking sand from the nose and mouth. No one group owns it. Each wraps her own way. I’ll show you.
As a business student at the International University Grand Bassam, I am always interested in changing markets and industries. I hope that by accessing wider markets and empowering local talent, Cote d’Ivoire will benefit from the advances in technology, logistics and payments that are already benefitting the developed world.
There is no one culture or religion associated with prosperity and peace. Rather, prosperity and peace will come when we find common ground and work within our diverse communities to see good in one another.
