Uzima Expo 2013

 UZIMA 2013 front flyer
Now in its 2nd year Uzima Expo has been one of the highlights of 2013. It was nice to converse with new people especially those who had travelled from outside London. Again I did not listen to any of the workshops or have time for any of the treatments in the therapy room.


Give thanks to Lola and Vanessa for manning the stall whilst I mingled with the guests and other tasks throughout the day. But not all was work, as I caught myself congregate at the back of the main hall with friends shacking to the beats, it couldn’t be helped as the spirit of the atmosphere was within us.

It was a joy to see adults alongside young children on the stage drumming and dancing. The talented and cute Root2Tip team where amazing with the children strutting across the stage with their natural hair messages.

So much activities and unity in one space that ensured a holistic day was truly grounded that finished off with a spectacular evening of cultural awareness. There were many events on at the weekend but give thanks to the bloggers who came at the last hour after attending a hair event.


Sponsors Nubia Ltd featured a 2 page spread on Uzima Expo in their Oct-Dec 2013 – Black History month special magazine.

I give thanks to all those who made it possible and a true success to give the strength to continue enlightening the community. There was an abundance of media press – so instead of me rambling on about the day please enjoy the footage below and check out images on 


Hope to see you at Uzima Expo 2014 on Sat 19th July
bless – Sister E
