We created The Villij with the purpose of creating everything we have ever wanted for our community. From the stories that speak to us, to the events we’ve dreamed of going to, this platform is a true reflection of Shanelle & myself - Two young women of colour that strongly believe in the power of crafting meaningful and sustainable relationships within communities of colour.
I think communities are the connections that help us gain an understanding of ourselves. Through The Villij, we aim to unite people by building deeper personal connections and create diverse experiences so that we can grow and share together.
