I am truly honoured to receive the Young Changemaker award. This recognition helps to fuel my mission of fostering positive change and continue the journey towards a more diverse future in the comms industry. Diverse teams contribute to enhanced creativity and learning, which is incredibly important to me – and I hope to have shown others, by winning this award, how it can be done.

In a world where PR can often perpetuate the relentless pursuit of for-profit agenda, this award, I hope, symbolises a shift towards using influential tools for the empowerment of the working class and the marginalised. Diversity and Inclusion should not be used as a tool to make unethical business practices palatable.

Being named a Young Changemaker is a profound honor - so much so that it still feels surreal. It signifies more than recognition it's a global spotlight on the importance of amplifying diverse voices and perspectives in the PR industry. This award presented an opportunity to be a catalyst for change and inspire other Black women who likely don't see themselves represented.

Being a young changemaker means carrying on my family’s legacy. I come from a long line of people who have fought to share their voices and perspectives, and I’m honored to fall in their footsteps and inspire others to do so.

To be selected as one of this year’s changemakers means a lot to me. Especially coming from Africa where you don’t have the literal examples of women doing successful things within the comms industry for you to look up to.

I just hope we keep making this industry bigger, more ambitious, and more influential. I think we do that by being brave enough to do the things that might not be traditionally “PR.” To bringpeople in that might not be traditionally “PR, ”and just to make it feel a bit more dynamic, fun, and interesting.
