...and this is why media and society needs to be careful about disproportionate negative images and narrative they share and show about the growing number of different groups and races (black, asian, hispanic, gay, women etc.) The children are the future leaders. As a mum of a one year old black boy I do have fears of what the future prejudices my son will have to face through such unconscious or conscious conditioning. #makeachange and #changthenarrative #mediaresponsibility
The lady to my right is my older sister Grace Adesina. She has a masters in chemical engineering and worked for a leading oil and gas company. She is a mum to two bright kids and just finalised her divorce this year 🤗 Apart from my mummy dearest and some of my closest friends, Iam blessed and lucky to know the most fearless, selfless and loving woman. She is my second mum. She is all business and the brains behind our business successes. She is watching her clock in this pic as she is also my timekeeper and reigns me in when my visions get out of control and budget! World let me introduce you to my sister GRACE ADESINA @grace_toks Every female should have one. Ps she will try and delete this post btw but i will keep on reposting as im 'the loud embarrassing sister'☺ #sisterhood #shadesofbeautylive #sblive #myshadematters
January was a month First's!

But what made it worth it was my family and friends who lend their support on the day love you guys! Massive thank you to @moyesaco for your patience and flexible with myself, the team and the cast- cant wait to see the preview.

Sunday night with the big sis @graceassam at @ugotjokesuk what a great way to end a stressful week but with a bit of laughter.
Great presentations from at the launch of the @ukbbshow inspirational talk from @biancamillerofficial from apprentice who also gave a dragons den style verdict alongside @thecolournetwork @annikaallen @officialkojo @shebuildsbrands amazing judging panel and constructive criticism given not only to the budding entrepreneurs but also to the audience. Well done @ukbbshow looking forward to next year show and some more awesome networking.
I gave my first prsentation on Fair Hair Care over the weekend which included headline hair stylists @anthonycuts and @tokyostylez giving a masterclass straight after my presentation. It was our soft launch and the crowd were engaged and receptive to our organisation and our campaign. Thank God! Getting ready was nightmare but it all worked out and nerves turned into excitment and I'm sooo thankful to @viktoriaxx @tolufrimpong and Yasmin for having my back! Team work makes the dream work couldn't have got through without you ladies! Winter 2017 will be our official launch so watch this space.
