Stuff in society that makes you angry:
"The issue of colourism is something that I strongly relate to as being very dark skinned, I've had some unpleasant experiences... I feel that this is a huge issue as it allows for prejudice from your own race as well as others which in itself has huge ramifications and gives way to more stereotypes...it's a fundamental issue as there are an infinite number of problems that we have to tackle daily e.g. Police brutality and equality in general, so colourism is effectively another problem that we ourselves have added to the list.

Girl Crush: "Rihanna (obvs). There's a way Caribbean women in particular express their sexuality so openly and without shame that I love.
