“I joined COLLUSION because I wanted to be part of something that created the change that I want to see.”
Chidera, 23, known to her followers as The Slumflower, is an award-winning blogger and author, and a politically astute force to be reckoned with. Her moniker is inspired by Street Etiquette’s ‘Slumflower’ project that centered around the idea of a rose growing from concrete, which the young author sees as a direct parallel to her own experience of growing up in Peckham. Her self-help books and inspiring TED talk cover a wide range of contemporary feminist issues. From body positivity – Chidera began a viral movement named #SaggyBoobsMatter – to issues on race and gender, she is already a leading voice on intersectional politics.
