Women We Love – Kemi Baldenoch


Look who we are crushing on today! It’s Kemi Baldenoch.

Kemi Baldenoch became Saffron Walden’s First-Ever Female Member Of Parliament in June after securing over 37, 000 votes.

Kemi made her maiden speech in the House of Commons, where she talked about her journey from being a common Nigerian girl to an immigrant, who is now the MP of Essex.

According to her, the political institutions of UK may not always be held in high esteem, she believes that it symbolises the greatness in the country.

“When I walk down these corridors and stand in this chamber, once graced by my heroes, Winston Churchill, Airey Neave and Margaret Thatcher- I am filled with nothing but awe, respect and pride for all that it stands for.”
