Being a Teenager is tough, but for us African girls growing up in the UK, it can be even harder. Dual heritage can be both a gift and a struggle.
Life is just plain confusing sometimes.
Like when you experience one culture at home and another at school. It’s not unusual to feel frustrated, confused or just wanting to shut it all out. Truth is, we all need a space to figure some of this weirdness out.
At Blossom we understand us girls need a big sister or an aunty every so often. We need someone to help us understand changes, differences, to cheer us on, or just to give us a friendly hug and say it’s going to be alright. We need to be supported and loved; but mostly we just need someone who really understands us.
That’s why we founded Blossom.
Blossom is led by an amazing team of women. Click below to learn more.
We work alongside and receive accountability and support from these resources.
Our aim at Blossom Foundation is to Educate, Inspire & Empower the BME Black African girls in the age group of 10-20 through their transitional stages of becoming an adult.
This is so that we can identify issues from an early stage and intervene to make corrections to help them be the best they can be in all life aspects be it social, physical, emotional and economic wellbeing.
