About me

A multi-talented individual who fearlessly moved to London in December 2016. Possessing a CILEx Legal Secretarial qualification, I have been fortunate to work in FTSE 100 organisations. Since moving here, I have realised I am a true creative at heart and I have fully immersed myself in many programmes and projects, over the past two years. I have been featured in many publications such as Time Out, Poet in the City, DSTNGR, Depop, Screen Skills (formerly known as Hiive) London Film Week, Reform the Funk, and Create Jobs. I am passionate about always becoming a better version of myself every day, and I do this by taking part in personal development programmes, whilst having an inquisitive mind. I am an Art and Design student at Kensington and Chelsea College, where I am currently designing my first collection for my handbag brand, Cartèlea Kelsie.
