About me
I'm a journalist, editor and copywriter based in London. I’ve recently left my role as a junior copy editor at Soho House, having previously worked on Net A Porter’s editorial team. As a writer, I've contributed to several magazines and newspapers including Refinery29, Kinfolk, Sunday Times Style and Harper’s Bazaar. I've also interned at Courier and the Financial Times, and freelanced as an editor, sub-editor and copywriter for gal-dem, Browns Fashion and Mr Porter. @FedoraAbu
