Secretary Of JayJay O
My name is Nicole Hügel and I am 25 years old.I love travelling and dancing.
I am a very open minded young lady from Upper Austria.
As a main job I am a french clerk but I also sew clothes for people and give lessons for kids
if they need any help at school.
Ever since Jennifer and I are good friends we found out that if we work together everything is
easier and better.
I learned a lot from the African culture and she also did from the Austrian.
Together we are strong! Thats what we do believe in and thats our guiding idea.
Well I do believe in it that together everyone achieves. For one person it will take longer to achieve something in life, but if we help each other and work together we can do great things. The essence of the beautiful is unity in variety. Unity means that people help each other with their knowledge.
Whether cooking, dancing, languages, trade things- it doesnt matter! If we will work hand in hand
life gets more easy.
I am the secretary of our organisation JayJayO. I am also responsible for all the translation
parts from german to english and french.
Financial Secretary and Organizer
I am Mary Darko, a pensioner. when i migrated to Austrian early 90s. There were not many Africans. It was very difficult to going to a supermarket to buy groceries because i could not speak the language and did not understand fully the Austrian culture. After some time I learned the language and culture and got closer to the native Austrians. I joined different kind of organizations and we were able to do a lot by that time even though we were not many. I then felt more comfortable in Austria.
In 2012 when I heard that there is a new organization launching in Linz which focuses on cultural integration in the African diaspora in Austria I decided to be a part of it. I am the financial secretary and also an organizer at Jay Jay O. I love to help Africans living in Austria and beyond in any little way i can and i believe i can contribute to the African diaspora in my own little way with Jay Jay O African cultural organization. Together we create change.

My aim of joining this organisation is that when i came to europe in year 2000.I passed through some racial Abuse and some difficulties as an African. Because of that i made up my mind to study hard enough so that i can help others who are passing through it.I love to see the smile on peoples faces after helping them, it gives me more energy to go on helping others. In styria where i live ,i help those who who can’t speak and read german like i do.I sometimes take them to their appointments and also reply their letters for them.
I have known Jennifer for a quiet long time and also during the search for Mr. FOAA 2014 and 2016 which i participated but was unlucky to win, but it didn’t stop me to do what i love to do most.
