Why Black Ticket Project founder Tobi Kyeremateng is Stylist’s Inspiration of the Year
Meet the woman improving access to theatre for young black people, kicking ass as a producer, and doing it all with the best smile in the business.
Ahead of Stylist’s inaugural Remarkable Women Awards, we asked our readers to nominate one woman you thought deserved to be recognised as a true inspiration for 2019.
As predicted, the nominations came flooding in. And we’ll be honest: it was an incredibly difficult process to whittle those names down to a shortlist to be voted on by the public.
