Style Diary has been quiet for some time now but no more! I’ve been keeping this special style diary feature, saving it for last because she’s one of my favourite bloggers.

ABY: Give us a little bio stats

My name is Paola. I’m originally from Haiti. I used to be an executive in hospitality management. I have opened, managed, and operated hotels and restaurants in NYC, but recently, I decided to quit my day job to only focus on the creative side of me. My hobbies include hiking, hula hooping, reading, blogging, traveling, hosting fun/lavish gatherings, and always learning new things. I am now the creative director/owner of Fanm Djanm, a headwrap line  and movement to empower and inspire women around the world. The line is about dreamers and doers. Fanm Djanm means strong woman in my Kreyol language, and that’s what the brand advocates. It’s a celebration of strong women everywhere.
