Meet The Team
Those closest to me will know that I am no stranger to challenges. Throughout my personal, business, and social life I have encountered many obstacles to what society would tag ‘success’. All of which, looking back, I naively accepted and never really addressed in the best way. My story is not unique, there are many individuals from influential professional people, to social amateurs, and many in between who are displaced due to the challenges they’ve encountered in life.
My social change footprint began 30 years ago when I made a milestone choice that would affect my life for good. At the time I was in what I now know to be a ‘toxic’ relationship. Things weren’t great between us and I wanted out of the relationship. This prompted an abusive reaction towards me which resulted in him continually stalking me and ultimately tried to kill me. It was only afterwards that I could clearly see the damning signs. But nothing could have prepared me for the untimely death of my mother who was the ‘foundation stone’ of my life, someone to look to and rely on to help me bear my load in life. She was amazing and touched many other lives as I found out at her funeral that was attended by over a thousand people. I realised then the importance of owning my own legacy, something positive, I can pass on to the benefit of others.
And at that point, I decided something had to change. It was now going to be ‘All About Me’ – I had to change ‘me’. I studied psychology and empowerment extensively and singularly set up the first Social Change PR Agency specialising in diversity marketing and race relations, firmly establishing myself as a ‘Social Change-maker’ to inspire, encourage and empower people to ‘be the change they want to see’.

Black Wall Street media is a global platform founded to bring the latest news across the diaspora. In order to create and promote and build community, we feature stories by and about Black people of the African Diaspora. This definition is globally inclusive and also applies to mixed and Afro-appended people regardless of gender identity or orientation.
We see Black Wall Street Media as the ultimate modern hub for the diaspora. Outside of our online our content, we utilise our reach as a platform for creative energies to build and maintain a vibrant community and create opportunities to showcase the wealth of talent across all sectors of the community. However, our editorial content is the heart and soul of this media company. With our platform being created for and powered the diaspora, we are seeking stories that the mainstream media doesn’t share and angles that are on-time and relevant.
In terms of the type of pieces we want to publish, we publish articles that go deep, make an impact, seek change or awareness, or explore unreported angles and underrepresented communities. We want pieces that go the extra mile to represent Black excellence.
