About me
I champion music and mental health as a DJ, Project Manager at Mix-Nights, Co-Founder of 'No Boundaries' and former Mental Health Representative at Bristol University. Following on from a Psychology degree, I successfully led campaigns around student mental health and executively produced an award-winning documentary. Having worked in TV and Radio at the BBC, I merge my work in media with activism, combining my love for music with her drive to advocate around well-being. I first made my mark in music on 1020 radio, where I began using my platform to share my love for underground Trap, Rap and Drill. In the club, my sets showcase sounds from around the world, infusing high-energy Baile Funk rhythms with everything from Afro-Trap to Hard Drum. Having worked with the BBC, BBC 1xtra, Rinse FM, VICE, Channel 4, gal-dem, Mixcloud, Boiler room, Notion magazine, Foundation FM, Eric Festival, 1020 Radio, Pirate Studios and Creative Access, I am dedicated to mental health advocacy in music, media and beyond. @nessamariaw on all social media platforms
