It is already hard to believe that the month of June is upon us. Lots of changes have occurred around me. Professionally, the first few weeks have been fairly busy.

On the 7th, I took part in a panel discussion, looking at the role of businesses and sole traders in African Inter-trade within Africa and the African Diaspora. This was hosted by Sustainable Hills. A video will be posted shortly.

On the 8th, I continued my involvement within The Virtue Programme, empowering young girls with the skills and training needed to be the leaders of tomorrow.

Also on the 8th June, I performed poetry at the 2Inspire Fundraising event.

I have recently commissioned the amazing film making company Mellow 9 Productions http://www.mellow9productions.co.uk/ to bring my poem ‘Lips’ to life. They have worked with a host of top UK spoken word artists. Filming took place on Wednesday 26th June 2013. The cast were superb. The crew were excellent, highly professional and an absolute joy to work with. I Will post further details and video link soon. Very exciting!
