Diane Audrey Ngako is the former Le Monde social media editor, who left journalism for an exciting start-up she created called Visiter L’Afrique (Visit Africa) and a content agency Omenkart in 2014. She is now based in her native Cameroon and has managed to build a community of ambassadors from various African countries, who contribute to Visiter L'Afrique, with information about what to see, do and eat while travelling. The digital platform also works with contributors to show the continent at its best, and includes an Instagram round-up of the top images from #Visiterlafrique.
The Forbes 30 under 30 honoree nurtured an online community of storytellers and travellers who share interesting images, videos and tips to get the most out of life in various regions on the continent.
The bilingual entrepreneur is inspiring Africans to look at their respective countries with a new lens, and also encouraging visitors to enjoy the continent in an authentic way by using the website and its social media channel as a resource.
