PORTRAIT Journée de la Femme 08 mars 2015: #Soraya SONE, Founder & Creative Director of The LUXE Group

Parce que Ayaa Opinion s’intéresse également à la décoration et que bien que les agences africaines fleurissent dans ce domaine, peu nombreuses sont celles qui sont réellement talentueuses et à qui vous pouvez faire appel les yeux fermés. Soraya SONE est l’une d’elles. 

AO/ Qui est Soraya SONE ?

My name is Soraya SONE. I am 32 and I was born in Yaounde, Cameroon. I now work in Cameroon and I am the Founder & Creative Director of The LUXE Group, Cameroon.

AO/ Racontez nous l’histoire de la marque LUXE Events ?

I lived in London for over 15 years, and during this time I was privileged enough to work for one of the best event agencies, Urban Caprice, whose list of clients included the likes of Louis Vuitton, Elle, Jo Malone, Armani to name a few. With that experience  under my belt, I then decided to move back home to start something fresh and chic. I saw a gap in the market and decided to take a leap of faith and created The LUXE  Group.

AO/ Avez-vous été confronté dans votre parcours professionnel à des défis liés à votre condition de femme et de (jeune) femme africaine en particulier ?

Professionally, no, not really.

AO/ Comment décririez-vous  la femme africaine d’aujourd’hui ?

Let me use the term the “NEW” African woman. She is strong and resilient, powerful, influential and ambitious. She is an entrepreneur and represents her community in the best way she can. She is eager to create something new and transform the continent.

AO/ Comment voyez-vous la femme africaine dans l’avenir ?

For Africa, I think our time is now. The generations to come will be even more ambitious. There will always be challenges that the African woman will face but by being daring and courageous, I believe they shall overcome.

AO/ Votre top 3 des femmes sources d’inspiration ?

1. My mum for her strength in character

2. Maya Angelou for all the poetic teachings

3. Nana Yaa Asantewa for her fighting spirit

AO/ Un conseil ou un mot d’encouragement pour les jeunes femmes qui vous suivent et qui souhaiteraient se lancer dans l’organisation d’événements ?

My advice is to dream. Dream the dream that God has for your future, the one he planted in your heart as a child. Put Him before all your decisions and you will see the dreams come to reality. Be creative and attentive to people, open your eyes and your heart, because events is not just about decorating, its about creating moments people can never forget.
