In 2017 I graduated with a 2:1 MA in History from the University of Edinburgh. I spent my first year as a graduate interning with The Young Women’s Movement in Edinburgh, where I provided key support and on occasion led the delivery and facilitation of a leadership programme, ‘Young Women Lead’ in partnership with the Scottish parliament.
I am passionate about challenging stereotypes and discussing taboo issues in a creative way online and I have been a contributor to BBC The Social for over a year. In October 2017 I had the opportunity to head up to Aberdeen, Scotland with BBC Radio 5 Live for a guest reporting feature about ‘period poverty’. More recently I worked on a piece with the BBC Radio Scotland programme Time Travels for Black History Month.
