I’m Louisa Kiwana, welcome to AFROBLUSH, my blog dedicated to celebrating and debating Pan-African Culture and lifestyle. I started this blog in 2011 as a creative outlet and a way to tell my own story, plus share my experiences as an Afropean – Ugandan living in the UK.
As part of this blog, I also run the AFROBLUSH Podcast, a fortnightly podcast series aimed at illuminating voices and perspectives pertaining to the Pan-African diaspora. You can listen here: Soundcloud / Youtube.
By profession I work in marketing and research and support brands to better understand their customers through qualitative research and strategic consultancy. My hobbies and interests revolve around media, broadcast and design. I enjoy watching film, theatre and love good wine and conversation.
I’m also honoured to be ambassador for LUX (which you can read all about here); and contribute to Impact Magazine, Arise News, Dazed and Confused, BBC, Guardian, and a ‘go-to’ person for some of the world’s most influential brands including Unilever, Diesel, MTV, Diageo Rebtel and London’s Southbank Centre.
If you would like to get in touch or feature yourself or your brand on an upcoming podcast episode, I would love to hear from you. Feel free to leave me a comment below, drop me a tweet Tweet to @afroblush or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
