Funso: Welcome

How would describe yourself and your identity?

My name is Funso, I’m an Anthropology student and freelance photographer. I identify as black/mixed race as my dad is Yoruba (Nigerian) and my mum is from Liverpool, UK

Funso: Welcome

What is identity to you?

Identity is a way of giving each of us space in the world, a way to belong to something bigger than ourselves – a way to be part of a community

Funso: Welcome

What was your experience of growing up in the UK?

I think my experience has been pretty okay, apart from people making fun of my nostrils and touching my hair every school day without fail. I have been able to meet people with identities spanning all walks of life because of how diverse London is

Funso: Welcome

Has this shaped/changed your identity?

Definitely! I have learnt so much from other people and their identities. I feel it has made me more tolerant and open to developing my identity and allowing it to change

Funso: Welcome

What influences your identity?

Your environment, your parents, media the list goes on. I feel there are boxes in society and we just find the one we feel most comfortable in according to how we look or feel
