ABY Events: SIPEC (Sherai’s Initiative for Promoting Entrepreneurs in Cameroon) – The Launch

By Posted on 2 1.3K

As much as I love fashion, I do realise that it doesn’t come first. As a young professional, one must strive to be better than their utmost best. My love for Jimmy Choos can only be reinforced by how hard I work to afford them 😉 I love seeing young people (especially Cameroonians) successfully exploiting their entrepreneurial skills. That’s exactly why I was beaming with pride and excitement when I glimpsed the SIPEC story a few days ago via Facebook.

I like to treat my ABY readers and what better time for a well-deserved treat than on a Friday?! After a long and gruelling week of hard work, late nights and early mornings here’s something to make you smile. On Camer Spotlight this week is edgy Cameroonian model Miss Geli Forlefac. I shot a few quirky questions at the Grace-Jones-type-fierce model and here are the fun replies she had for me:

ABY: Let’s get the basic introductions in. Who’s Geli?  Well, first off, my family is straight from Cameroon. I was born in the States with the rest of my siblings and I guess that’s what they call first generation. I grew up in Maryland right outside of D.C around Silver Spring and Bethesda. I went to Bethesda Chevy Chase High school. I’m currently not enrolled in University. …
