How to be 100% Yourself: Jordan Dinwiddie x 'Nubia: Real One'
Play • 33 min

Who's your favourite superhero? And now … what's the colour of their skin? Excluding greens and blues and purples, there aren’t that many Superheroes of Colour. But did you know that Wonder Woman has a black twin sister? In this episode, award-winning copywriter Jordan Dinwiddie introduces us to Wonder Woman's sister Nubia, and discusses the importance of recognising and embracing your power. Jordan, who works at Wieden + Kennedy, has been behind many ads that we see daily, including ads featuring Lebron James, and notable black women in sports.
