They’re the next big thing in journalism!
Founded by Serlina and inspired by her daughter. This award-winning magazine, Cocoa Girl is the UK’s first magazine designed to celebrate Black girls and give Black children ages 7-11 a voice.
Makeup artist Tallulah, and journalists Janai and Arayah curate creative content online and exercise their journalism skills through exclusive interviews. Recently their dreams came true when they got the opportunity to interview Ariel and Eric in real life, Halle Bailey and Jonah Hauer-King.
Our Little Mermaid Video Went Viral on FB and unfortunately I had to delete it to protect my kids (I’ll explain in another video). But meeting @halle and Jonah will be a memory that she’ll cherish forever! Halle Bailey is an amazing Ariel 💝 #littlemermaid #thelittlemermaid #hallebailey #hallebaileyismyariel #blackgirljoy #childblogger #childmakeupartist #cocoagirlmagazine♬ Part of Your World (Reprise) - From "The Little Mermaid"/Trailer Version - Halle
This all started a year ago when Tallulah posted a video watching The Little Mermaid trailer for the first time which went viral. Now a year later the girls had the stars sitting in front of them and got a chance to meet the women who made it all possible, Beyoncé and Halle’s publicist Yvette Noel-Schure, hair stylist Tinisha Meeks, and makeup artist Christiana Cassell!
This is surely a moment they won’t forget. The Little Mermaid with our favorite, Halle Bailey, drops on May 26th!
