"Today I became the first Black woman in the world to be awarded with a Masters in Psychology for Fashion. I have always and will always fight for the inclusion and positive representation of Black and minority ethnic women worldwide”, Shakaila Forbes-Bell.
We pride ourselves as one of our own has been awarded masters in the field of psychology for fashion. The Black beauty shared the news via her Instagram page (@poppyshock). She posted her beautiful picture after graduating with the statement that;“Today I became the first Black woman in the world to be awarded with a Masters in Psychology for Fashion”.
She continued and said “I have always and will always fight for the inclusion and positive representation of Black and minority ethnic women worldwide. It is pivotal that the marks we leave on this world are visible for all to see so that future generations of little black girls know that their achievements are boundless”. Yes, that’s our newest Black heroine in town.
The fashion psychologist further bemoaned that “From incidents as severe as Black men and women being executed at home and abroad to something as pathetic as being told that your skin is too dark for a makeup brand (that actually happened to me last week, shout out @Clinique) we face many challenges as a community. With this small step and the many steps, I hope to take in the future I hope to further the narrative of black girls being powerful, beautiful, and intelligent and of course.
Research reveals that Black students are less likely to be admitted to special programs for talented students, even if they have equally high academic performance as Whites. Such inhuman racial instances creates a void in the system, in which more disadvantaged enthusiastic and hard working children of color break the shackles of not being white.
Shakaila Forbes-Bell is a Black-shackle breaker and BM congratulates her on such an awesome achievement despite the hustle and tussle of being a Black woman in such a demanding field.
