Freelance Writer

United Kingdom

Freelance writer with a background and interests in politics. I mostly write about identity and social issues.

A significant part of my early work focused on Brexit and its impacts on young people and ethnic minority communities. I have subsequently expanded (but not limited) my focus to center the Black European experience and Black womanhood.
