Reclaiming by Yewande Biala


I am more than enough, and I am perfect with all my imperfections.

In 2021, Yewande Biala wrote a searing viral essay on the debilitating effects of having your name constantly mispronounced or changed. From the incredible response to the essay, it was clear that there are still so many conversations to be had around the way that we as a society respond to each other, and the direct effect it is having on our sense of self.

Reclaiming consists of interlinked essays covering a wide breadth of topics from struggling with your body image and mental health to navigating social media and dating apps without damaging your self-esteem. Each essay covers a different topic, affirming that maintaining your sense of self in a world that is not supportive of you is difficult, but not impossible. Nuanced, distinctly sharp, and full offull of wit, Reclaiming holds a mirror up to us all, and encourages us to like what we see.


'Yewande Biala offers piercing honesty and a sisterly voice ... a must-read book for not only Gen Z, but for anyone who has ever been on social media.' The Skinny

'Reclaiming is a brilliantly written and thought provoking book. Through amazing story telling, Yewande highlights the richness in her culture that so many other black women can relate to. It was extremely gripping right from beginning.' Oloni

'A deep, internal exploration of what it means to be a young, ambitious Black woman in the public eye, living in the UK and Ireland today. Searingly honest with flecks of humour.' Maame Blue

'I absolutely loved it. I think it's clear to anyone who's read Yewande's earlier essay that she's a phenomenal writer and talent, and this is an incredible debut. Empowering, instructive, loving & honest...the kind of text that makes me excited to be a reader' Beth McColl

'I'm so proud of the strong, intelligent woman Yewande is. She is using her platform and own experiences to educate, inspire, empower and to help others!' Amy Hart
