Projects
  • Kazvare Made It: not just a pretty pictureI interviewed illustrator, Kazvare Made It, for Alhaus magazine.
  • Studying drama at university and other odes to whiteness"Study the arts in a city they said; be at the heart of it all they said." In this article I wrote for Medium, I recount my experience at university and how, years later, I can appreciate how my course's lack of diversity was completely ignored.
  • The good, the bad and the illegal: Unpaid internships“Over a quarter of graduates have completed unpaid internships…over half of unpaid internships were over 4 weeks in length.” In this article I wrote for Medium, I dissect the intricacies of the laws surrounding unpaid internships and argue for the government's tightening of policy in this area.

Using a still of my choosing for stimulus he created an original artists impression that I have used in the thumbnail and within the article itself.
  • yakkThis is my personal website where I post articles on all things lifestyle, entertainment and travel related.
