  • Carry a panic alarm
  • At night I walk with reflective clothing on
  • I have worked my way up to black belt in Tai Kwondo and I continue to work on self-defence techniques
  • I carry a small foldable baton in my bag, great for knocking a man over the head with it
  • I generally avoid walking around at night and if I do, I choose busy areas that are well-lit

I write about Health, Wealth, Race and other things. Founder Pink Intrigue + Freshlight Media. I give away my earnings to change lives in Ghana
