“It’s refreshing to take part in conversations with experienced, inspiring and articulate black people making positive contributions to society. It’s All Blakademik is a much needed space and a rare opportunity for me to ‘fit in’ whilst at the same time being appreciated for having a slightly different experience to my peers.
