STEPHANIE YEBOAH

Agent:  Hattie Grunewald

Biography: Stephanie Yeboah is a freelance writer, public speaker, fat acceptance advocate and a multi-award nominated plus size fashion blogger, having started her writing journey during University in 2009. Stephanie realised she wanted to explore a career in writing after creating a blog which predominantly focussed on detailing her hatred for the Law degree she was undertaking at the time, alongside her dreams of wanting to break into the fashion industry with her own plus size line.

Stephanie has owned plus size blog, Nerd About Town for over 10 years, and throughout that time has written extensively on topics including body positivity, race, intersectionality in feminism and dating all from the perspective of a black, plus size woman living in the UK.

She has written for publications such as Stylist Magazine, Elle Magazine, GQ, The Evening Standard and Who What Wear. Her hobbies include arguing with racists and fatphobics on Twitter (@NerdAboutTown), taking oh-so-glamorous ‘fashion bloggah’ photos in the middle of Oxford Street (to the annoyance of pedestrians), and endlessly scrolling through terrible dating profile apps of men looking for their ‘fat, black Queens’,  sighing in disgust and despair.
