As an award-winning style blogger, presenter and speaker from Peckham in South-East London, Chidera Eggerue – popularly known as The Slumflower has amassed a very large following of over 20,000 women from the ages of 16 to 30 through opening up important dialogues that women often struggle to have, including topics like body image, dealing with emotions that scare us, the journey to success, and feeling out of place in society.
Due to her extremely high social media engagement and exciting content at www.theslumflower.com, this following has quickly turned into a small community full of like-minded people who want to change the world around them. Being a woman of colour who deals with a lot of subtle friction in her industry, she’s managed to find the balance between speaking up and calling out inequality in the industry whilst maintaining a relatable, fun and infectious attitude. She’s also the creative director of Innclusive – a Florida-based vacation rental company with over 200,000 properties globally, tackling racial bias in the travel industry by creating a platform that prioritises the ethos of being yourself wherever you go – especially for travellers of colour.

it's awesome to remind yourself, that you aren't the same person who made those mistakes so it's also okay to part ways with old pain. 🕊
