Spread the Word is thrilled that Theresa Lola, the Young People’s Laureate for London, was chosen to feature in the September 2019 issue of British Vogue, entitled Forces for Change, by the issue’s guest editor, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex.
Theresa features alongside friend of Spread the Word, poet and artist Malika Booker, in a section called ‘Leaders and Proteges’ (page 297).
In her guest editor’s letter, the Duchess states ‘more than anything, this issue is about the power of the collective. In identifying our personal strengths, it is anchored in the knowledge that we are even stronger together.’
We’d like to send our congratulations to Theresa and Malika for featuring in this change-making edition of the magazine.
