  • The Bola Sol Show: Season 1
    The Bola Sol Show has been created to give everyone a chance to have their opinion whilst maintaining respect for each other regardless of opposing views. The target audience is for 'The Forgotten People', which represents people that feel that their story isn’t valid enough to be heard and they are not visible enough to be seen. Season 1 centred around stereotypes such as Daddy Issues, how men are viewed in today’s culture and The Angry Black Woman. One story at a time, The Bola Sol Show aim
  • Refined Currency
    I've gotten more women to speak about money matters and be confident in their ability to clear debt, save and even invest.

  • #OneDayIWill - International Women's Day 2016
    I was part of the #OneDayIWill campaign put together by Google where women had to say what they will do one day. Out of 337 people I was one of 58 chosen! I decided to say "One Day I will make women more financially confident." Through creating we are still working on doing that today.

  • Afro Caribbean Society | Heritage
    I ran and was elected to be the president of the Afro Caribbean Society (ACS) from 2012-2013 at the University of Essex. In that time we created a monumental event for Black History Month called Heritage. We celebrated our culture through dance, fashion, poetry and drama. And for the first time ever (or in a very long time), the event was sold out and packed to the brim with people from the local Essex community as well as university students.

    We still have a long way to go when it comes to conquering the lack of diversity in all industries – which is why it is so important for us, as a platform, to use our force for good. True diversity at every level is the key to innovation and success, so we celebrate and promote Black talent throughout the year, including via our list of brilliant Black leaders. This is definitely not an exhaustive list, so we’re always looking to unearth more incredible rising stars to feature and promote, to h
