YASMIN BELO-OSAGIE

OkayAfrica's 100 Women celebrates African women who are making waves, shattering ceilings, and uplifting their communities.

Yasmin Belo Osagie is the She Leads Africa co-founder who has made a name for herself with the popular platform, which seeks to advise and inspire African women on entrepreneurship and opportunities. The community is comprised of women on the African continent and in the diaspora, who connect online or congregate at the #SheHive events all over the world.


The Princeton University alum teamed up with Afua Osei to create a place where smart, ambitious women could learn from each other and grow. Since She Leads Africa came into existence, Microsoft tapped Osagie to star in an ad, in which she explains how technology helps SLA serve women all over the continent.

Osagie is a high-achieving entrepreneur who is studying for a Law degree at Harvard University, which she will complete in 2020. The U.S born leader is empowering African women to think big with their businesses, and support each other on the way to the top.
