Hello there! I’m a writer and organizer with a healthy obsession with lip gloss, making conceptual Spotify playlists, and side-eyeing (or congratulating!) the enormous catalog of TV shows that flood our screens.

With my distinct lens as a quirky Ghanaian American Black woman, I strive to understand our present by analyzing the past and looking brightly into the future - and afrofutures.

My work - ranging from personal essays and cultural criticisms to op-eds and interviews - explores the unconditional relationship between pop culture and intersectionality, how black women use our bodies to communicate our dreams, desires and superpowers to the world, and the necessity of self care as a formative weapon against oppression.

In addition to documenting and storytelling, I co-founded Sister Circle Brunch, a womxn of color event for sharing food and discussing self care, and Unblended, a photo and interview series that celebrates the mutual empowerment of Afro Asian friendships.
