About me

I'm a 23-year-old NCTJ-accredited freelance journalist and presenter with a passion for fashion, beauty, and pop culture. From September 2015 I trained with the BBC as one of their first Digital Journalism Apprentices, gaining a wealth of experience within video and digital journalism across TV, Radio and Online. From April 2016 I worked with BBC's Digital Current Affairs (DCA) department until March 2018, where I researched for projects and stories as well as creating video and written content for different brands within DCA, such as BBC Like That and BBC Stories. After leaving the BBC, I briefly interned with ELLE UK's fashion department. As of April 2018, I am being represented by Seren Adams of United Agents and I am currently working on my first book which will focus on empowering young, British Black women.
