Here’s fourteen things I’ve learnt while being fourteen. It’s okay to be different. Embrace your quirkiness and individuality! Be proud of your background! I am so proud to be black and of my ethnic background. Keep hold of the things you love and cherish them. Whatever you’re going through,isn’t a ‘phase’, it’s part of growing…

How To Deal With Exam Stress

Don’t Catcall At Me!

Catcalling. Catcalling is disgusting and humiliating, many young girls before they reach the age of sixteen have been catcalled. Yep. Before the age of sixteen!

Monthly Reads: March 2016

Ever since I was a little girl, I wasn’t able to do certain things I wanted to do because of my gender. It’s a shame really. I could have had so many opportunities and past times that I could have loved and enjoyed. Boys and Girls, do whatever makes your heart happy! Don’t let someone…

3 Face masks for all skin types!

AWARENESS FOR FEMINISM

What’s the first word you think of when you hear feminism? Is it equality? powerful? or man- hater? (I’m hoping it’s not the last one!) Out of curiosity I’ve asked quite a lot of people their views on feminism and feminists and most of the replies I’ve received is “no, not really, women have the…
