Slow Starts, Things Change

At the start of last year I set myself a number of goals. Looking back in hindsight, although some of them were reachable and I did achieve some of them, a lot of them I'm yet to achieve. The truth is last year didn't go quite how I expected. It wasn't awful, but I believe... Continue Reading →

Let’s get real about: Body Image

It's been a while since I've written - well I've written of course, but I haven't posted anything for way too long. Between packing up the entire contents of my life in London and locating it to Surrey, I've been spending a lot of time getting myself together for the next academic year - Year...

Quarantine Update: What’s Next?

What's lockdown looking like for you at the moment? Have you got back into swing of a normal life or are you still feeling really cautious? I'm sort of in the middle. Of course I'm still cautious and careful but yet I am thankful that I have been able to get back to normal living... Continue Reading →

Strong Black Woman

This one may be less informative, less powerful, less valuable to you, and to the cause. But this is what is on my heart. And this is what I want to share. I cannot speak for the whole of the black community but I can speak for myself. I am a black woman, and like... Continue Reading →

Introducing Black

Black is not a personality type. Black is not a music genre. Black is not food. Black is not a shooting target. Black is not a threat. Black is not an enemy. Black is just like you. Black is beautiful. Black is capable. Black wants to achieve. Black wants to flourish. Black want to live.... Continue Reading →

You’ve posted a black square…. now what?

Tuesday 2nd June saw thousands of Instagram users posting a black square. Thousands of people standing up for Black Lives Matter, refraining from posting personal pictures, videos and stories, hashtags reading "#blackouttuesday" and "#theshowmustbepaused". If you didn't have a feed filled with loads of black squares, I'm convinced you're living under a rock! Although this... Continue Reading →

For the next generation

I'm sure most of you have seen the news recently with the racial injustice that is happening in this world that we all live in. If you haven't, and have somehow managed to miss it, I suggest you remove your blindfold, get on the internet and do a bit of research on it. Although we... Continue Reading →

Stop putting them on trial!

In the last few weeks or so I've seen so many posts on Instagram and Twitter that say something along the lines of: "If you haven't bothered to check up me during this pandemic, I don't class you as a friend". Or something of a similar flavour. Have seen them too? Gratefully all of these... Continue Reading →

Why I chose to study English Literature?

Between year 10 and 12, I was set on studying psychology at university. My original goal was to be a psychologist but about three weeks before sending off my personal statement my plans changed. I had already half written of my psychology personal statement and it occured to me that I wasn't actually that interested... Continue Reading →

What am I planning to do next?

Hey guys, bit of a quick one today. I've been thinking a lot about how I can expand my platform to reach and reflect more people. Not only this but I do a lot more than writing and it's quite difficult to cover everything I do simply through my writing. Expect to see: IGTV videos... Continue Reading →

Come and see the place where he lay."Matthew 28:5‭-‬6 Happy Easter you lovely people!!! Resurrection Sunday is the most important day in the Christian calendar. This is the... Continue Reading →

A New Found Fitness?!?!

During university, I put on a load of weight. Beforehand I wasn't necessarily a gym fanatic but I certainly did a lot more than I did once I begun my new chapter at uni. It got to the point that I hate looking at the group pictures I took on my 19th birthday. My diet... Continue Reading →
