I am a single mum to three sons and grandma to one. Born and raised in Africa, I came to UK in my late teens. Having experienced colonialism, racism, sexism and christianity, I realised that internalised racism and sexism is far more dangerous as it makes us participate in our own oppression. I am a Social scientist, teacher, lecturer, community activist, general nurse, couples counsellour , life coach, business coach and reseacher. My life circumstances meant I learnt what I needed to in order to be there for my sons. I am passionate about freedom, justice, empathy and compassion
My dream is that African women and girls regain their power by facing and dealing with internalised racism, colonial mentality and sexism; that women all over the world will self-liberate from internalised oppression and refuse to do men's dirty work for them - for example genital mutilation, foot binding etc -and so kill off these barbaric "traditions"- and work together across the globe to make domestic violence a thing of the past, so women and children can feel safe and secure in their own homes.
