Today’s episode is with Tobi Oredein. Tobi is the Founder and Editor of Black Ballad and a freelance journalist based in London. She can be described as an enthusiastic journalist who is passionate about creating unique content that simultaneously engages readers and that puts publications and brands on the cutting edge.

I recently came into contact with her when I read her article on BuzzFeed entitled How I Learned To Be Both Nigerian And British. I loved how raw and honest she was about her identity crisis growing up and how she eventually learned to accept herself.

I reached out to her and we immediately bonded over our mutual Nigerian heritage. We talked about what it means to be black today, feminism, identity and the significance of Michelle Obama.
