Musemo (Mo) Handahu is a multi-faceted creative based in Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada. With an eye for the cool and buzz worthy, she creates content for brands looking to grow their influence on the digital space and also those expanding to the east coast Canadian market, where she calls home. Her roster of clients includes powerhouse telecommunication companies, tourism boards, shopping malls, automobile conglomerates, airlines and fashion and lifestyle brands.

Musemo uses her love for the digital arts and fashion to inspire her community, especially by championing for the increased visibility of plus size women and African Nova Scotians in the arts where a lack of representation is unmistakable. For her work, she’s been awarded the Entrepreneurship, Youth Involvement and Outstanding Community Service Award by the Black Business Initiative and was also honored with the Founders Choice Award by Body Confidence Canada.

At a time when collaboration is key, Musemo works with Etsy Canada, a global peer-to-peer e-commerce website that boasts 1.4 million sellers of handmade or vintage items and supplies, as well as unique factory-manufactured items. She’s been commissioned to create and teach workshops on Building An Online Presence for new Etsy sellers during community-led programs designed to invest in creative economies and start conversations about the maker movement as a vehicle for positive community change. Musemo was also selected, along with 9 other community advocates across the country, to attend Etsy Makers Cities a 1-day Summit held in Toronto in February 2016. They connected to discuss ways to link city governments, local arts organizations, local manufacturers and creative peers to build sustainable Etsy economies.

Musemo’s eye for style has not gone unnoticed. This year she was named on Canada’s Best Dressed List by The Globe and Mail and was a finalist for Redbook Magazine’s Real Women Style Awards. She lends her sartorial expertise to CTV Atlantic’s Makeover Monday Segment where she gives deserving winners a new look to help them put their best foot forward.
