My name is Madeena Maishanu, I am a journalist and freelance writer. I was born in Sokoto State, Nigeria and I grew up in Amsterdam, I feel that it is our responsibility, as the upcoming young African youths to portray to the world how beautiful African cultures and lifestyles are. I am extremely passionate about the reception that Africans in the diaspora receive due to the media coverage, so with this great opportunity in hand, it is a chance to show the world how beautiful Africa is and how smart and intelligent Africans are , with Afrokanist Magazine right at our disposal now, I can see all my dreams literally come through already.
