Dare To Be Powerful

Audre Lorde

"When I dare to be powerful - to use my strength in the service of my vision - then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid."

Audre Lorde (1934-1992) was an American poet, essayist, and civil rights activist. A self-described “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet,” she dedicated both her life and her creative talent to battling the injustices of racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia.

Hello! My name is Nikol and I look after the Laidlaw Scholars Network.

I am originally from Kazakhstan and I studied Human Sciences at UCL. My final research explored the potential effects of design on patient wellbeing in hospitals, and I also took modules such as Ethnographic Documentary Filmmaking, Anthropology of the Built Environment, Art in the Public Sphere, and other less interesting-sounding things :)

Drop me a line if you have any questions about the site, or if you'd just like to chat! I am always down to meet interesting people, so let's get [virtual] coffee ☕️
