Chidera Eggerue, popularly known as the Slumflower, is the author of What A Time To Be Alone.

She is also an award-winning blogger, speaker, creative director and a presenter of the The MOBO Awards. Her blog The Slumflower addresses the subjects of female empowerment, self-confidence, self-love, black hair, fashion, and self-exploration. ELLE magazine recently ​called Chidera a ‘millennial mastermind’​. ​

After her recent appearance on ITV’s This Morning, Chidera has managed to drive a new conversation regarding the way we view women’s bodie​ – creating the saggy boobs matter. ​​She scooped up Cosmopolitan’s ‘Highly Commended Disruptor/Changemaker of the Year 2018 Award’ and ​was placed on the #DAZED100 list. Her recent BBC Newsbeat documentary on hair loss in young people has reshaped the way we view hair loss and she’s on a trailblazing path to encouraging us all to be comfier in our flaws.

Chidera’s debut book, ‘What a time to be alone‘ is already a top 10 best seller. In this episode we talk about the power of being alone, ‘cancel culture’, problematic faves, how to deal with Internet trolls and how to reflect on your actions in a positive way. Hope you enjoy listening!
