Here we go again, just when it looked as if the representations of Blacks in the British media had improved, and cultural behaviors understood, the BBC’s Aprentice introduced us to Edna Agbarha on Tuesday night.
One of ten siblings, the 36 year-old London born Edna rose from working as a teenager on her uncle’s Covent Garden market stall to her first position as a Business Psychologist and coach. Edna holds a Bachelors degree in Psychology, two Masters degrees and enjoys cycling in her free time.
I’m desperate to root for her, but the lady ‘who doesn’t suffer fools gladly’ is already rattling feathers and appears to have a bit of a bad attitude. Selecting herself as project manager, was a surprising success and the girls managed to avoid the boardroom as their Smartphone App had more downloads then the boys. Edna looked a little relieved when it was announced that the girls had won the task and was sent back to the house to enjoy a special culinary treat. Here’s hoping she grows on us.
