I studied Law and Social Anthropology at SOAS, University of London, which ignited my passion for human rights and social justice. I currently work in the Social Marketing and Children & Young People's teams at Time to Change, England's biggest programme to change the way we all think and act about mental health problems. I'm interested in intersectionality, with a particular interest in the experiences of people of colour within the mental health system.
As much as it's a cliche, attending Campaign Bootcamp 5 really did change a lot of things for me. Since then, I've worked as a Regional Campaign Manager for the Scottish Green Party and helped elect the youngest ever MSP. More importantly, I've a strong interest in campaigns for social justice and equality, really care about diversifying the campaign/organising sector and building effective solidarity networks.

I'm a grassroots campaigner and serial volunteer passionate about mental health, youth empowerment and tackling structural inequality.
