It's funny. It really is a season where Africa is rising. Hapsatou was born in France to a family from Senegal and Mauritania. She studied international business and took a trip to New York City. She got inspired and launched Ethnicia a multi-racial and multi-cultural hair salon in Paris, opening her first one on the Ile Saint Louis. Quite a feat if you know anything about France.
She gave a wonderful talk for TED. Check out her blog and website!
