Hey Beautiful People and thank you so much for looking into me! I'm Tese, The Black TCK. I am a poet, artivist and content strategist who helps artivists and artists to get bizminded so they can get paid to do what they love. I am a Third Culture kid who was born in Nigeria but grew up all over the world. Lately, I've found a new love and passion in the sharing African culture and history with the world.

This patreon account is a way for me to build a sustainable community around my art and the work I love so that together we can change things for the better. I will be creating pieces of creative writing every week and will be releasing new additions to the living database of African history and culture that I am creating almost every day.

Your support will help me to devote all my time into creating work that demystifies Africa, encourages discussions around topics like mental health and wellness and preserves our beautiful culture for future generations. It will allow me to travel around Nigeria and hopefully other African countries documenting various aspects of our culture and history. It will allow me to create art that helps destigmatise mental illness in West Africa and provides spaces to further conversations around mental health. Your support will also allow me to seek mental help   tYour support means everything to me. <3
