I am a first generational black Somali girl living in London. This affirmation becomes hard to identify with sometimes, as with most kids who grew up in the diaspora, trying to identify yourself is as hard as trying to figure out what really happened at the end of Inception.
I have met some of the most incredible, inspiring and kind hearted women, who have directly and indirectly supported the growth of this platform. Meet Jacqueline Shepherd (Broadcaster, Presenter), Simone Bresi-Ando (I'mPossible), Bukky Fatusin (Curlvolution), Gabrielle Smith (iamthenublk) and Jacqueline Shaw (Africa Fashion Guide).
Beauty and identity, were the themes of many conversations sparked by Joana Choumali’s ‘Hââbré - The Last Generation’, at the private viewing of her first solo exhibition in London.
