In this article, I show how young women in the Senegalese town of Ziguinchor are using Internet technologies as a way to communicate with European men in the hope of forming relationships that may lead to transnational migration. Rather than assessing the degree to which women are successful in their aspirations, I consider how online communication enables them to assert their agency and imagine a better future for themselves.
