About me

On my journey so far, I have completed News Associates workshops with The Times and The Sunday Times; spent months learning from the best at News UK; I’ve even experienced the workings of a fast-paced newsroom at South London Press; been mentored by Oliver Barnes, a journalist at the Financial Times, and been featured in a BBC News Story.

I have a keen interest in political affairs and global issues, which began after speaking to one of my secondary schools alumni, Fatima Manji, who told me, as a journalist it is “very important to tell the truth for society.” Inspired by this, I began volunteering for community organisations, such as Community First. I was also proud to become Peterborough’s first Youth Hate Crime Ambassador, a role which allowed me to promote justice and raise awareness of the impact hatred can have on individual lives.

Now 20 and almost finished with my BA (Hons) Journalism degree at London South Bank University, I am on my way to working in the media.
