Tessa, on facing colorism and Xenophobic discrimination

Tessa had faced discrimination as a result of her fair skin. People were calling her Yellow Bone, and she wasn’t pleased and wasn’t afraid to silence them.

“I can tell you right now, I don’t care what colour or complexion you are, I will call you out. People who know me will tell you, if you try to be racist, sexist, or anything to discriminate against me, I will tell you ‘no, don’t do that, not with me. Stop!’ I also hate people who stand by and just watch because that makes you an enabler,” she said.

She also experienced Xenophobia, but she admits that her experience was subtler than other foreigners who went through nationalistic discrimination.

“I didn’t get formal training to act but I took classes and I learned other things on the job. It was a decision I made so that I become better at what God has called me to do. That way I get my gigs on merit,” she added.
