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, I would love to hear from you, please feel free to leave me a comment below or drop me a tweet: Tweet to @afroblush. Thanks for visiting!
