Everyone gets better when you do.

I understand the weight and frustration behind taking care of everyone else, but not having enough time and energy to take care of you. That’s why my mission is simple: to give my clients everyday strategies to help them prioritize their wellness. Truth is, you can absolutely make time for yourself AND care for the people you love.

 

EGO Initiative 

Ebony Girls Obsession was created in 2016, to empower Black women to engage in high-level self-care, through story-telling. It has since evolved into a multi-service wellness consultancy. I now specialize in creating space(s) for Black women, youth, and businesses to assess their well-being and providing them with the necessary tools to truly take care and live their whole, best life.

Hello, Igho Diana here; poet, arts & wellness facilitator, visionary woman.

 

I wholeheartedly believe that it takes a village—not only to raise a child but also to support adults through our healing and wellness journey. So I create communities for Black women and youth, to invest in themselves and each other’s well being, through storytelling and communal learning experiences.

 

Particularly, I support Black women and youth in prioritizing self-care, so that they are better able to show up for, and receive the support of their respective communities. I do this by way of mentorship, workshops, events, retreats, and community activations.

 

In addition to all of the above, I am a 3rd year Community Development student at Humber College. I have been a spoken word artist for 10 years now; having been on the Vancouver Poetry Slam team in 2010, and performed at literary festivals, events, and schools across North America. To date I have facilitated over 150 workshops on creative writing and self-care in collaboration with organizations like VIBE Arts, ArtStarts, St. Stephen’s Community House, ArtReach, the Gardiner Museum, and Humber College. Currently, I co-host a weekly creative writing and performance workshop, called Speak BLAC, at Humber College.

 

My proudest accomplishments include an appearance in the Toronto Star for my unique fashion sense; an award for consistently advocating for marginalized folks; and maintaining a 90%+ GPA while doing all the things. You can catch me storytellin’ on social media @ighodiana / @EGOInitiative
