Black Paris Profiles™: Yetunde Oshodi

Yetunde Oshodi and I both live in Paris, yet it is unlikely that we would have ever met if social media did not exist. We corresponded for weeks through Twitter, and then finally met face-to-face at a Tweet-up this summer. (Paris has an active Anglophone blogger and Twitter community—bloggers and tweeps often meet at cafés for a couple of hours of real live chit-chat.) It was at the summer Tweet-up that I learned that Yetunde runs an apartment-rental service and that her French husband runs a cooking school.

Born in Lagos, Nigeria, Yetunde moved to the northern suburbs of New York City at the age of six. She first visited Paris in 1995, when she says the “art de vivre that is oh, so French, called to me.” She particularly loved the cafés, which she described as being great for art, culture, food and people watching!
