Hi there! My name is Coco Bassey, and I’m a Nigerian native based in New York City and Atlanta, who spends most of my days working in the corporate marketing world, and my nights and weekends working on this little project of mine that you’re reading right now! I’m a Pisces, a cancer survivor… and as you’ve probably already guessed, a millennial.
I grew up in Canada, Czech Republic, Nigeria, Germany and the USA (in that order, more or less), and my dream has always been to continue exploring the world and sharing it with you! I’ll be continuing to unfold the shareable parts my life through this website, but if you have any other specific questions about me, my blog, and/or the work I do, hop over to my contact page to get in touch! I always love getting feedback from my readers :)
redefining the millennial experience,
one outfit at a time
The internet has thousands of articles about Generation Y, or “millennials” as we are more often referred to as: what we like, how we live, what we do, how we love… some of it is great and spot-on, but to be honest, MOST of what’s out there is pretty bleak! We’re told there are no jobs, we feel too entitled and expect too much out of life, the world is coming to an end, we’re becoming over-saturated by mindless media, and the list goes on and on…
Despite some of these realities, I strongly believe that a big part of finding happiness in life is a personal decision we all have to make. I created Millennielle as my visual diary to share my interests and life developments including: personal style, DIY projects, travel and other inspiration. My blog is always evolving, and my ultimate hope is to do my part shedding some positive light on what it means to be a millennial woman in today’s world. Thank you so much for reading!
