  • 500 Years
    I’m so fed up of seeing those horrible blue single-use masks littering the streets! They last for 500 years before they break down! Scientists predict that, if we don’t cut consumption, there’ll be more masks than jellyfish in our oceans. So I wrote a song about the issue. Introducing 500 Years! Wear reusable please.
  • Invade Yourself
    Recently politicians and the media have increasingly vilified refugees. Ring leaders such as The Daily Mail, Priti Patel and Nigel Farage have dehumanised the people risking their lives to cross the channel by calling them an 'invasion', a 'swarm' and branding them as 'criminals'. This spreading of hate messaging only causes British people to lose empathy when considering the hardships that refugees have faced while fleeing for their lives and the safety of their families.

  • Touch It
    Female masturbation! Feeling uncomfortable? For those with vaginas, masturbation is shrouded in secrecy and shame. This shame is causing a pleasure gap! Touch It creates a movement that empowers young women to explore and accept their bodies and needs. This campaign gets people to move their body for their body, celebrating their shame-free right to pleasure! It will change the narrative of female masturbation, from unspoken to spoken and from shame to pride. Signalling to girls everywhere tha
  • Planet Points
    Planet points places the environment at the heart of shopper decision making. Many people are cutting out palm oil or plastic from their weekly shop, but currently there is no reward or support for this behaviour. Behaviour psychologists outline that personal environmental action lacks incentive and feedback. It’s impossible to know whether our little actions make that much of a difference, and for a lot of us, that can be demotivating. Planet Points provides immediate incentive and feedback
  • Nike Plus - Cheerleading
    Statistics show that girls aged 14-19 are struggling to participate in sports. But what statistics overlook is that there is an activity that girls are participating in... that’s Cheerleading! Cheerleading is the fastest growing activity in the UK, especially for teen girls! But the problem is, it’s not classed as an official sport by SportEngland. As a result of this, Cheerleading lacks funding and girls don’t feel included in sports culture or championed as the athletes they are! Nike Plus
  • Know the Name, Love the Game
    Know the Name, Love the Game tackles equality in football. Women’s football doesn’t have a consistent following or devoted fan base like men’s football. Despite loving the game, female players are undervalued and underpaid. Male footballers are always in the media; people know their names and stories. This isn’t the case for women. Know the Name, Love the Game raises the profile of women’s footballers by showing their stories on and off the pitch. It’s a fun way to increase excitement about i

    Undertaking a course in Climate Change Solutions is providing me with an in depth understanding of the UN's sustainable development goals, basic knowledge of the science behind climate change and the appropriate areas and methods to bring about solutions.
