BLACK WOMEN'S CONFERENCE 2017 - SPEAKER

Reclaiming spaces: Women of Colour excelling in Sports & Business


Kelechi, Actress, Personal Trainer and an instructor of Pole dancing as well as Twerk.

Kelechi is an actress, personal trainer and an instructor of Pole dance as well as Twerk. In September 2016, Kelechi opened her own studio as a way of highlighting the faces and bodies that are often erased within mainstream fitness culture. Kelechi uses her classes and the workshops that she facilitates as a vehicle to move women towards an unbreakable relationship between their mind and body.

Some may refer to Kelechi as a "twerk and fitness guru" which she wholeheartedly embraces, but ultimately Kelechi sees herself as a professional Baby Girl and a Benz Punani Womanist. Inextricable descriptions of her insistence on carefree black womanhood.
