Episode 50: Let's talk about Beauty by Baze Mpinja

Greetings Glocal Citizens!

This week "B" stands for "beauty" and Baze Mpinja, a Congolese-American writer, editor and consultant based in Brooklyn, New York.

Born in New Hampshire after her parents emigrated to the US and raised mostly in Arizona, Baze considers herself the most unlikely beauty writer ever. She’s the first woman in her family to graduate from a university and her grandmothers never learned to read—when they were growing up, girls didn't go to school. While her career as a writer at times seems unfathomable, Baze is no doubt the real thing when it comes to telling stories for leading brands and beauty publications.
She's gone from working at multicultural, niche magazines with startup environments (Suede and Vibe Vixen) to becoming a staffer at one of the most widely read women’s magazines in the country (Glamour), to working as a writer at the world's leading theatrical advertising and branding agency (SpotCo). Be sure to check out her cover article for the November 2020 issue of Allure Magazine!
