Building The First Black Woman-Owned Boutique Hotel in Marrakech

"Recently. Visiting marrakech morocco. I had the pleasure of sitting down with mary. Ann and learning more about her life as a hotel owner guests that stay at her hotel gets a take in the rich global an african identity that she has incorporated across the resort to encourage visitors and guests to experience the culture and traditions of morocco. Maryanne first degree may have been in law but her heart has always been in architecture design and the arts. This is maryanne wealth-building story. Hello my name is maryanne. And you're listening to millennial wells builders so. I come from a family where we would never talk about money but we would talk about education and studies and the key to a good lifestyle like fortunately our parents were able to give us was to study. I mean this was the thing was it was not even questioned. It was obvious that we would go to university and have a good job and be independent as a woman i was. I never considered that. I would count of on the income of husband it. I was going to be feared us. Fiercely independent and i think this was my only connection to money because you know you study. You have a good job and you have money but this is not the purpose. The first thing is to develop your own personalities through education well first of all. I'm an accidental auto-pay. It was not an objective. I came to being a two year. Because i love design and architecture and i discovered morocco which was america. She's three hours flight. From where i'm from paris lawyer and and i designed to house and then i had to get an income out of it so by default it became a hospitality project. And then to my own. How you say to my own amazement. It became a project where everybody wanted to go

"U. S military aid, drove the Polisario Toe Western Sahara's eastern desert. Morocco then created the world's longest minefield and built the second longest wall on Earth with the help of U. S weapons companies, Northrop and Westinghouse. The nearly 1700 Mile wall divides Sahrawis who remain under occupation from those who fled into exile. The Moroccan government began decades of torture, disappearances, killings and repression against pro independence Sahara, always living in the occupied territory. In 1991, the U. N sponsored a ceasefire and promised Sahrawis referendum on self determination organized by its peacekeeping mission known as manure. So since then, Morocco has blocked attempts to organize the vote. And the U. N Security Council has refused to implement its own referendum plan or allow manure so to monitor the human rights situation in the territory. Today, no country recognizes Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara, one of the most inaccessible places in the world, and the international media has largely ignored the occupation. In part because Morocco has routinely blocked journalists from entering Western Sahara. But in late 2016 democracy now successfully broke the news blockade. We were in Marrakech, Morocco for the United Nations Climate change Conference with U. N credentials and U. S passports. We decided to take a chance and attempt to do what no foreign television crew has done in years..

A group of five hundred seventy students, how am I gonna you left the university campus marching peacefully waving flags and chanting. There are no alternatives to self determination. Sealed off the street Beseeched as tear-gas spreads sultana was beaten. By police one of whom singled her, out for more abuse Often one of them recognize me right at my eye with, his baton when he did, that, I bent?

Didn't get any medical treatment till the next, morning at eleven when a group of Moroccans came to be telling someone to sew up my. I blind them because when, I was in the ambulance another. Woman was crying and telling me you're is gone They were trying to sell it my eyes. So other women could see. It and think twice before getting involved in activism they wanted to make an example of what can what do you have confidence that Western Sahara will.
