 Noëlla Coursaris Musunka, “elevate young girls with education."



Noella experienced loss of parental figures very early in her life. Her resilience led her to work as a model for various brands in the world's biggest cities. But she always knew that she would be fully fulfilled elsewhere. 15 years ago, she founded Malaika, a community center and a school located in a village of DRC, her home country, that empowers local girls with various skills to prepare them to be leaders and key players in the world.

In co-production with the L’Oréal Fund for Women, “Revealing” tells the stories of those who, every day, contribute to changing society.
