An activist, model, role model to young women and nominated Model of the Year at the 2016 Fashion Awards. Her face has graced the cover of Vogue Italia, and campaigns for H & M and Calvin Klein (alongside FKA Twigs and Kendall Jenner), but Adwoa Aboah is more than just a pretty face. The young Brit caused waves in 2016 when she opened up about her struggle with addiction and depression in a video created for the “What’s Underneath Project” an initiative formed by StyleLikeU. Like other participants before her, Adwoa removes an item of clothing with each question to show that true style is about being comfortable in your own skin. In late 2015 she started Gurls Talk, which is in the process of being recognised as a formal charity. "Gurls Talk is my baby," she says. "It's just about opening up a space within schools where we as women and girls can talk about whatever we want." At its core, it Gurls Talk spreads a larger message of honesty and openness for young women, but also tackle issues like depression, drugs, and overcoming self-hate which Adwoa herself has faced. Online the handle and accompanying hashtag spreads inspirational messages to promote gender equality and in turn, breed female solidarity.
