ABOUT

Focuses: Books, race, feminism, young people, society, mental health + Scotland. 

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.

In November 2017 I was a I am a confident and experienced panellist and chairperson. I have worked with The Edinburgh International Book Festival, Children in Scotland, Glasgow Women’s Library and TedXBlythswoodSquare.
