Panel Discussion, Poetry Readings, Crystal Palace Festival, Making A Short Film with Mellow 9 Productions and Workshops
Performing at the 2Inspire Fundraising event
It is already hard to believe that the month of June is upon us. Lots of changes have occurred around me. Professionally, the first few weeks have been fairly busy.
On the 7th, I took part in a panel discussion, looking at the role of businesses and sole traders in African Inter-trade within Africa and the African Diaspora. This was hosted by Sustainable Hills. A video will be posted shortly.
On the 8th, I continued my involvement within The Virtue Programme, empowering young girls with the skills and training needed to be the leaders of tomorrow.
Also on the 8th June, I performed poetry at the 2Inspire Fundraising event.
