“We have the mentality that we’re trying to survive – not thrive… That is something I want to change.” – TRiBE founder Seyi.
When Seyi reached out to UAL ACS via email and explained about her charitable organisation called TRiBE, I was eager to know more. So I arranged an informal meet up at Chipotle on Charing Cross Road to discuss a possible collaboration…
TRiBE was set up by Seyi to encourage and empower young women of colour to develop the skills and experience they need in order to gain access to the opportunities they want, whether that be in their career or personal life. This is done through our 3 programmes: mentoring, workshops, work experience & internships. Best of all, ALL their services are FREE!
“A lot of the time we’re told what to do rather than aiming higher…” Seyi explains.
TRiBE services are open to all BAME female students/young people interested. Find Seyi at Thenublk presents ‘Our Stories: Women in Film this Thursday 19th March at London College of Communication (booking essential).
