Brown, Brainy & Beautiful (est. 2016) is a safe space that aims to facilitate a discussion to dismantle power structures, such as patriarchy. It stands for celebrating diversity with regards to identity, race, ethnicity, gender, religion, knowledge, appearance and preferences. We dream of a world consisting of fairness and equality, wherein everyone continuously grows – both personally and spiritually – and are simultaneously in service of others. This website platform takes an inclusive approach and aspires to empower, inspire and mobilize its readers and writers. That’s right, we also invite you to contribute in sharing your thoughts when you feel connected to our inclusive vision. Feel welcome to join a relevant discussion, to share your preferences and to talk about what you are passionate about.

One of their missions is to eradicate ignorance by educating themselves and breaking down barriers while being caring to their self and others. Their philosophy is that life is short, beautiful and that it should flow, organically. In short, they are not your average bloggers.
