For the past 11 years, arguably my most defining and recognisable characteristic has been my hair. So, what better way to get your attention than to shave it all off!

Black Minds Matter is a non-profit organisation providing support and personal development for young people in the form of workshops, art therapy, mentoring and much more. I'm supporting Black Minds Matter because of the great work they do in the local community to support young people, their families, communities, schools etc. to tackle the inequalities BME people face every day.

"Black Minds Matter is for anybody aged 13- 25 who is passionate about changing things that will bring about a more equal and just society for all ... We offer a range of creative self-development opportunities aimed at building leadership and self-development for social change."

I will be shaving my head on Saturday 27th June 2020! I will be doing an Instagram live stream for people I know personally, and for anyone else who has supported the cause I will be uploading the full video to YouTube after the event and sharing to this page

Please share this link with your family and friends and support this cause with me - thank you so much for your support!
