Annique We Young QueensI’m a city dweller with a desire to move to the countryside. To quell this urge, I write, I listen to music, I read and I take long walks…usually in the countryside! Learning about other people’s journeys is another pastime of mine. I would like to live in a world where people are judged based on things they can control (if at all) and there is true equality of opportunities. Until then, you can find me hanging out on Twitter. Oh yeah: #BlackGirlsRock!

Syeshia We Young QueensWhen I’m not coordinating university admissions, I’m usually busy myself with food blogging, going to the theatre, creative writing, travelling, being a crazy Aunty and socialising with friends. I’m passionate about supporting women and being part of a women’s support network. I believe we can advise and encourage one another personally and professionally: we are so much stronger when we stand together. I love hearing women’s stories; their strengths and vulnerabilities both within and outside of work. I very much look forward to meeting and learning from different women of all ages and backgrounds on this journey called life.

Whilst my passion for music and football often governs most of my time, I do enjoy exercising the socialite in me and exploring new places. Having a background in commercialisation and promotions has given me the opportunity to engage with a variety of people, which I have grown to love. Creating a space where Black women can showcase their excellence is an important goal for me, as one may be led to believe that such a thing does not exist!
