On this episode, we’re going back to London to speak with Kenya Juma, a young student and creative entrepreneur who, at 17 (during the time of this conversation), already leads creative writing and empowerment seminars across Britain.
She’s also a spoken word artist whose work centers around black joy, resilience, and being a young black girl or woman in Britain. As if that wasn’t enough, she’s a three-times self-published author and podcast host who has appeared on prime-time TV shows in the UK.
In this episode, Kenya performs some of her poetry live - which moves Christabel to reflect on her own growing pains and how they have left their mark years later.
