Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Essex but my heritage is Dominican and St Lucian.

What is one thing your followers do not know about you?

My followers do not know that I’m actually a homebody. Everyone thinks I enjoy being out, socialising at events and parties but I really enjoy the simple things in life like staying in and spending time with my close friends and family.

How did you get started being an influencer and how long have you been at it?

I started off as a personal blogger on blogspot.com in 2012 and then I moved to tumblr. When Instagram launched, it was a great way to combine all of my followers on one platform. On Instagram, my content is mainly fashion and beauty focused with a bit of travel. On YouTube, I love to engage in discussions with my followers. I’ve recently started a video series called ‘Pepp Talk’ which focuses on empowering and uplifting women and has garnered millions of views.

Describe yourself in 5 words

Ambitious, Opinionated, Creative, Comical, Inspirational.

In 2017, you took the courageous step in shaving your head. What was the motivation behind this?

It was a long time coming but I'm just so happy I began my journey of wholeness and self acceptance by stripping back the layers of protection I've used to feel secure while in search of my true identity. You can hide from others but you can only hide from yourself for so long. I'm not hiding any more. My true self is good enough! Why? Because I said so! Makeup is a great tool to enhance ones natural self and reveal different aspects of my beauty. I wanted to encourage my followers to challenge the beauty standards imposed by society and social media. I may not be your cup of tea and that's ok because I'm finally at peace with myself.

Who is your beauty muse?

There isn't one particular person but dark skin women of all shades inspire me. I love seeing content of beautiful dark skin girl with glowy skin.
