Tone also known as Antonia is the music editor of gal-dem, self dubbed as "a vibrant online magazine written by women of colour for all to explore!". We couldn't agree more. It's brilliant. 

She also is a radio producer working at BBC Radio 1Xtra and the Asian Network. She recently presented a documentary about colourism.

In conversation with Tone: 

What makes you a phenomenal woman? 

My ambition and my poker face. Over this last year in particular, I've found myself taking up opportunities I didn't see coming along so soon. In my mind I might have thought I wasn't ready but I went for it because if I didn't someone else certainly would. Sometimes grab life with your two hands and dive in. Don't look down!

If you knew everything you know now about life and general adulting, what would you say to your pubescent, teenage self about your worries? 

Stop worrying about things out of your control. 

Lastly, everyone grew up with different names for their vulva area - what did you grow up calling it? 

Used to call it my bending down. Don't ask.
