I am passionate about
ActionsYes, I'm one of the founding members of The Canadian Black History Month Gala
that has now partnered with TD Bank and the Mandela Legacy in Ottawa, Canada.
Through this gala, we the founding members started with the goal and
objective to highlight everyday heroes who fight against racism and provide
opportunities for the black community in Canda through giving back or living
examples of Black Excellence through their life's work. In working with other
organisations, Equal Voice and Girls Action Foundation. With Equal Voice, I
worked to highlight the gender imbalance that exists in Canada politics while
promoting and encouraging female candidates to be elected to public office.
Since moving to Montreal Ive been working with Girls Action Foundation to
promote healthy self-esteem and leadership skills with young girls aged
13-17. Through this supportive network of girls groups, I founded my own
community initiative, ForUsGirls to develop similar skills with a focus on
marginalized girls. We are committed to the acceptance, celebration and
development of: unique, fierce and daring young women. In addition, to my
work with ForUsGirls and Girls Action Foundation I'm the founder of the:
Modern Day Feminism in a Beyonce World conference. This conference is a
peer-to-peer conference tackling current topics within the work of feminism.
It infuses pop culture as a refernce point and an inspiration to new
discussions of gender inequality.
