Helping build the confidence and empowering individuals and communities is one of the key aims of the Charisma Campaign and this short clip was sent from an attendee capturing the end of the session that I delivered.
Raising the aspirations of young people has been an ever-increasing issue as there are numbers of young people who need the support and encouragement as well the extra push to aim high. Some young people struggle with low self-esteem and often need role models and people who can mentor and support them. Teaming up with Olympics Rower Gillian Lindsey I coordinated an event at a local estate in Dorking to help support young people gain skills such as leadership and public speaking skills. It was also a great opportunity for those who participated to hear about some experiences on how to stay motivated to reach their goals.
I spoke at the Warwick Africa Summit themed ” Ubuntu” which brought together some of Africa’s prominent leaders and influencers from the continent. Including Vice President of Nigeria Prof. Yemi Osibanjo and Africa’s richest man Aliko Dangote.

TEDX Chichester talk titled “Engage to change” highlighting the importance of looking beyond narrow ideas and embracing diversity.
October 11th has been marked International girl day by the UN since 2012. Another significant day this week was world mental health day which was on the 10th of October. Two very essential international days that raised awareness and highlighted issues very close to my heart. I joined women who travelled from all around the UK and different countries to be present for the Women Being Conference an International disciplinary conference which focused on issues around gender and the status of women. One thing that certainly stood out was how women from across the world till this day face considerable levels of obstacles which prevent them from gaining equal rights .It did not matter whether we were discussing women in China, Cambodia, Mexico, Tanzania, India… or any other country challenges still persisted for women.
My key note talk titled “Equally Flawless: The Beauty of Diversity and equal representation of women in the Fashion, Media, and Creative Industry” which was aimed at empowering the women that were present at the conference but also highlighting the fundamental truth of the beauty that exists in diversity, and the importance of it’s representation in our fashion, media and cultural industries. The global significance of the day for girls around the world helped me to also remember how important the work that we are all doing is to ensures that girls in our generation and in generations to come don’t have to fight the battle that we are fighting today.For more info visit women being website here
Short clip of a poem I read while giving my key note talk is available below
In diversity there is so much strength! This picture was taken after the last panel I spoke on titled " African International Unity and Multi-ethnicity" The image is a true representation of how despite our differences we can come together, sharing and supporting one one another to make the future better. Along with my Women Empowerment and Global citizen workshop September has been great and I am so thankful for the amazing people who always believe and stand by me. My next key note talk that I have been invited to is in Edinburgh on the 10-11th October 2017 at the Women Being annual Conference. I will be speaking on "The beauty of Diversity and equal representation of women".Please find details in my bio come and support if you are around. Happy New Month to you all! ♥ #October
