Ghanian-Australian Lillian Ahenkan (aka Flex Mami) is a DJ, MTV presenter, social media influencer, model and, most recently, a podcaster who is passionate about bringing conversations surrounding identity and intersectionality to mainstream environments.
Flex is all about making sure everyone has the tools necessary to glow up, and uses her platform for real-talk discussions on taboo topics, sexual liberation, dating and critical thinking.
She’s been featured in i-D, Stylist, Elle, Grazia, Pedestrian TV, Daily Mail, Man Repeller in addition to being a finalist for Cosmopolitan’s Beauty Influencer of the Year 2018. Flex has been championed by actress and body-positive activist Jameela Jamil as an ‘inspiration’, called the influencer we deserve, the ultimate girl crush, and the beauty icon we need right now. She’s known for her playful, thoughtful, empowering posts that are full of confident, modern wisdom and a powerful message of self-belief.
Flex is a self-identifying ‘spooky binch’ (refers to a person’s love for mysticism, astrology, personality typing, manifesting and all similar beliefs), and The Success Experiment is her first book.
