Episode 6: Assa Doukoure – Founder, Les Amis des Enfants / Model

Assa has always been passionate about the environment, which led her to emigrate to Canada from Cote d’Ivoire to pursue a career in the sector of renewable energy. Her journey led her to Saint Mary’s University culminating with a Bachelor of Science, Environmental science degree.

She is passionate about modelling and got involved in the modelling industry in Halifax about 4 years ago. She has walked for multiple fashion shows including Atlantic Fashion Week.
