Suzan Mutesi is changing the status quo for the younger generation by writing about transformational stories of personal discrimination and hardship into a book they can turn to and derive comfort from.
Susan Mutesi born in Uganda, moved to Australia and since then has been working tirelessly to build her career and a community both online and offline she can uplift. Susan started as a fashion designer and dressing local talent.
She segued in to acting, singing, modelling. Mutesi’s passion for music, acting and modelling is geared towards empathy, compassion, truth and love and that’s expressed in every art form she use. She recently released her first book- Unapologetically Black: Afro Sisters.
The book derives its narrative from her personal experiences, facing racism in and outside of the arts and modelling world, the release of her book in 2020 is significant as it has been four years in the making, and lends itself as an especially timely reminder to the next generation to embrace their difference, whatever that may be.
From a lack of opportunities available to Black actors on Australian television, to the need for greater representation and inclusivity within the fashion world, Vogue meets Mutesi to discuss career highlights, shortcomings in the industries she is a part of and the important takeaways she hopes readers will gain from her book.
