About me
I am an avid features writer who is crazy about culture and scrutinising societal practices. As someone who is curious about how society operates, I'm most interested in discovering, exploring and producing insights into different phenomenon and global happenings. I have bylines in LAPP Magazine; Meeting of Minds UK; Society19; Dear Movies zine; DiscoverSociety.org. I currently write for online magazine Yes Gurl and have been featured in their first print issue and first digital issue: Female Empowerment and Black Cases in White Spaces.

    World LiteratureUniversity of Kent
     - Canterbury, United Kingdom
    First Class Honours Over the course of my university degree I have developed a number of useful skills including strong written, analytical and presentational skills; effective arguing abilities; and developed communication skills. I am most proud of producing my final-year dissertation titled: 'The Power In Language: Identity Through Expression In Selected Caribbean Short Fiction' for which I achieved a first class grade. Here, I interrogate identity in the cultivation of expression through a comparative analysis of the use of language in literature in the Anglophone, Francophone and Hispanophone regions of the Caribbean.
