Marie Melanie Nankoo
My name is Kaizeea, a digital artists from Mauritius. I started Digital Art in 2016 while working in a jewelry factory, though I stopped working at the factory after a few months to dedicate fully to this new passion. I was learning to love myself and my origins after dealing with lack of self esteem for so long.
Art helped me discover other parts of myself that I didn't know. The creative part of me who sees the world differently. I grew up hating being African During my childhood and adolescence. There wasn't enough representation or role models that looked like me in society.
After losing a lot of hair due to excessive hair straightening, I decided to go back to my natural hair and through the journey of learning about my hair type, I came to discover more beautiful things about myself and my heritage. This helped me to love myself again.
Through my art I am continually discovering myself and sharing the love, to help people who have been in the same situation as me learn to discover their beauty and love themselves again.
