What do you do in a sentence?
I’m an Author and a Financial Wellness Coach.
How did you come up with the idea?
I feel there’s a connection between our finances and mental health. Well-being is vital and money can cause a lot of anxiety for some, I want to invoke more confidence and financial peace in people’s lives.
Why are safe spaces so important?
They give us room to bring our full selves to the table without hesitation.
What does representation mean to you?
Seeing women who look like me in every space and industry.
What’s your advice for someone looking for creative freedom to do what they love?
It may take some juggling between what you currently do and what you’d love to do more of but organise your time and make quarterly goals.
What’s your favourite Afrocenchix product?
Smooth, the moisturising hair cream!
How can we support your current projects?
Order my book How To Save It!
