Safiya is a self-taught cook and through her social enterprise sisterwoman vegan she is educating and creating a community and space for people of colour to explore veganism and wellness.
Safiya is using her role as a creative cook, writer, and speaker to nurture communities and encourage educational conversations surrounding ancestral methods of healing and systemic structures. Fervently championing the world of women.
Safiya uses her personal identity and social media platforms to inspire a new way of thinking.
Sisterwoman Vegan is Safiya's plant-based social enterprise, providing super clubs, food education, and private catering, with a focus on the richness of knowledge found in African diaspora culture and traditions.
She launched sisterwoman Vegan in 2018 a couple of weeks before she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. It was around that time that she was looking into the ancestral ways of healing through food in relation to mental health and so was the birth of sisterwoman vegan.
