Hi there,

Hello, I'm Tallulah, the founder of AfroSwissters. Growing up as a black woman in Switzerland, away from the bustling city life, I didn't have the privilege of experiencing the richness of diverse communities. It wasn't until my time in the UK during my high school and university years that I discovered a deep longing for a stronger connection to a black community.

Returning to Switzerland in late 2019, I embarked on a collaborative effort to bring a piece of that longing to fruition by working on expanding ADAN (Afro Deutsches Akademiker Netzwerk) into Switzerland in 2020. For the subsequent years, from 2021 to 2023, I served as the community lead for ADAN Zurich.

At my core, I guess, I have always harbored a deep yearning for a safe space specifically dedicated to black women. Simultaneously, I hold a deep appreciation for the beauty of different cultures, striving to bridge divides and create connections between them.

I see myself as someone who appreciates and adapts to various worlds, seeking to merge these diverse experiences into a harmonious blend. My aspiration is simple—to foster understanding and unity among diverse communities.

AfroSwissters, to me, represents an endeavor to create a welcoming and supportive environment for black women while cherishing and celebrating the wonderful tapestry of multiculturalism.

Join me as I navigate this journey, embracing the richness of diversity in Switzerland (and beyond) and striving to create an inclusive space for all.
