Candice is a ‘Mummy Blogger’, Influencer and founder of Make Motherhood Diverse – an online initiative that aims to encourage a more accurately representative and diverse depiction of motherhood in the media.
With a background in marketing Candice grasped the power and potential that Instagram had to offer and began to share her family life on the platform – her partner Bodé (Papa B), daughter Esmé-Olivia and baby son RJ – keen to show that young black families weren’t just surviving but thriving.
And when Instagram stories launched Candice took advantage of the new video format and created ‘Teatime!’, a 5-minute, daily ‘show’ where she could be the face she thought was absent from mainstream media, talking about her own life and tackling the bigger issues too; from mental health to colourism and male circumcision. Teatime has since become a live event series that sells out in minutes.
Candice’s straight-talking, original content has really struck a chord with fans and brands alike. She has worked on multiple campaigns and has several on-going partnerships (Pampers, Dove, Specsavers and Weight Watchers to name just a few) and appeared on countless panels, including Stylist Live and a debate at the Hay-on-Wye Literary Festival about modern motherhood.
Candice has also been featured in or contributed to the Metro, Huffington Post, Red Magazine, Stylist Magazine and has appeared on BBC News, Channel 5 News and Radio 4 talking about maternal mortality rates for black women in Britain.
Her first book “I am Not Your Baby Mother” is being published by Quercus and slated for release in May 2020.
