Lyza Lawal, writer, blogger, vlogger and student, this woman from what I can see and what I believe is absolutely unstoppable! Honestly I don’t know how we’ve been sleeping on Lyza and her content because what she brings to the table is very much the direction the plus size community should be heading! Inclusive and intersectional, I have to say that this young woman is a powerful voice here in the UK for women of colour and especially plus size women of colour. We can’t forget the impeccable sense of style as well! I’ve been frantically scribbling down notes from her insta and youtube channel for later use in my own fashion sense. Basically keep your eyes peeled for this incredible woman and her incredible work! Women like her are part of the reason I get excited about the future of blogging and the future of the plus size community.

What can the plus community do to ally with you?
What are the important topics we should know that British plus WOC are dealing with?
Colourism and Racism, lack of diversity.
What are your hopes for the plus community and for WOC in the plus community?
For there to be communication and acknowledgement of everyone’s difference.
How do you deal with insensitivity within the community?
Education. It’s never a fight, its a process of educating others.
How do you deal with targeted discrimination and racism, hate speech and prejudice within and outside of the community?
The same thing just having that discussion.
I’m your dream world what opportunities would you like to see plus WOC bloggers having?
Campaigns, Modelling opportunities and more engagement with brands.
