The pretty lady who shared the news via her Instagram page (@poppyshock) posted her picture after graduating with caption; "Today I became the first Black woman in the world to be awarded with a Masters in Psychology for Fashion. I have always and will always fight for the inclusion and positive representation of Black and minority ethnic women worldwide. It is pivotal that the marks we leave on this world are visible for all to see so that future generations of little black girls know that their achievements are boundless".

"From incidents as severe as Black men and women being executed at home and abroad to something as pathetic as being told that your skin is too dark for a makeup brand (that actually happened to me last week, shout out @clinique   ) we face many challenges as a community. With this small step and the many steps, I hope to take in the future I hope to further the narrative of black girls being powerful, beautiful, intelligent and of course - magic! #blackgirlmagic  #blacklivesmatter  #melanin  #love  #strength  #support  #blackwomen  #style  #fashion"

"I believe that fashion is an incredibly powerful force, not only in the way it can change our behaviour as mentioned before, but also in the way it fosters positive societal changes" Forbes-Bell revealed to Josh De Souza Crook of LCF News.

A fashion psychologist not only concerned with the  style/fashion bits but with human behaviour as a whole in relation to fashion with interests in all aspects of fashion i.e from designing to supply, purchase/merchandising and so on.
