Black Excellence

What are we all about?

We will be highly recognised as a major contributing force in promoting the positive impact the black community is having in the UK.

To be living, breathing and healthy examples – to both young and old – that truly exemplify the idea that anything is possible if you have respect for one another, work together and are willing to work hard enough to accomplish your life goals.  

To convince our young people that the only limit is the size of our ideas and the degree of our dedication, and to celebrate/motivate individuals working hard to develop the black community.

This website serves as a platform to share inspiring stories and celebrate achievers.

My Life as An International Student
My Life as An International Student

For context, my introverted extrovert perspective just explains me as an individual. Even amongst my group of friends, I may sometimes be the social butterfly or in lighter terms “the life of the party” (I enjoy when people around me have a good time and everybody is involved in the group), other times I shy away from human contact and interaction to find solitude in my alone time.
