I am honoured to sit on the board of the wonderful charity, BelEve.

BelEve is an organisation run by sisters Chyloe and Marsha Powell that works with girls and young women to inspire and empower them by running workshops, events and mentoring programmes.

Last week, we organised the first Out Of The Box Girls’ Festival to raise awareness and funds for the charity and I’m pleased to say the event was a huge success. Taking place at Peckham Levels and hosted by BBC 1Xtra’s Melody Kane, the event was sold out and filled with wonderful speakers, performers and influencers all sharing the message that girls can do anything they want to – inspiring stuff.

My role was to lead and organise the event and – like with all events – there were issues and there was a lot of work but I’m so pleased to say it was a huge success and, vitally, raised awareness and funds for this wonderful charity.
