Open Post: How's your week going?

Jamila with Sasha Sarago and Casey Donovan.

Hi friends. How are you going?

If you’re new here, welcome to Open Post. If you’ve been here before, welcome back.

Open Post is the place on Mamamia where you, our readers, can talk about anything. Life, work, love… anything is up for discussion.

I’ll start us off.

This week, our Editor-In-Chief, Jamila Rizvi, appeared on an episode of SBS’s NITV Awaken: Black is Beautfiul panel discussion, where she discussed what is beautiful and who determines what is beautiful in regards to diversity

Jamila was joined alongside some fantastic men and women, like Australian Idol winner Casey Donovan, Indigenous male model Jake Gordon, Social Commentator Jane Caro, celebrated indigenous artist and photographer, Wayne Quilliam, Director of Aboriginal Model Management, Kira-Lea Dargin, “See Me Now” filmmaker and advocate Glen Mackay, Founder of Ascension Magazine, Sasha Sarago, and Professor of Indigenous Health, Lisa Jackson Pulver.

Because I like to be part of everything, I went along with her to the panel discussion and got to experience all aspects of the filming.

So naturally, I’m sharing my findings with you all.

The discussion was fascinating and I could talk about it all day, but I’ll let you watch it and decide for yourselves.

Awaken: Black is Beautiful will air tonight at 8.30pm on NITV (Ch 34 free-to-air, Ch 144 Foxtel).

 Okay, enough from me. It’s your turn! How’s your week going?
