I started making handmade beaded jewellery in July 2020, during the pandemic to channel my creativity positively to help others.

The money raised will be used to buy materials, create meaningful jobs for people in the creative industry, and donate to our chosen charity BLAM - @blamcharity - Black Learning Achievement and Mental Health.

BLAM supports the development of the black curriculum in schools. From personal experience, education needs to inform young people in a much more truthful way. This will establish a strong sense of belonging and confidence in young people, positively encouraging their development.

BLAM UK Aims: 

1. To Champion Black British cultural capital and creativity

2. Improve the mental health and wellbeing of peoples of African Descent  

3. To provide a comprehensive and decolonised education  

4. To support social inclusion of the Black British community; through providing advocacy support and support groups 

Blam UK is committed to improving the wellbeing of peoples of African descent, which has been affected globally due to racism and racial trauma. We do this by dismantling the historical misrepresentation of black people, through our community outreach projects.

We plan to teach beading in schools in line with BLAM aims.
