About me

While most people look at beauty superficially, for me it’s a lens into identity and culture. As our appearance is our most consistent form of self-expression and activism, I’m continuously inspired to explore the ever-evolving beauty and fashion industries. This is reflected in my writing – features, interviews and news stories.

        • In the duration of my course, I attained an MSc in Cosmetic Science while acting as a student mentor, course representative and outreach ambassador.

Since graduating and work as a beauty writer, I have been able to translate this knowledge into my articles.
