I’m a 21-year-old aspiring activist journalist, writing about social justice issues. At the moment I’m focusing on the UK’s treatment of people who’ve been forcibly displaced into the country. I believe media should be a tool for mass empowerment, accountability and social change, and I want to be part of its transformation.

Since I was a kid, fiction, non-fiction and creative writing have been central parts of my life. Some of my other favourite things are learning languages, listening to live music and being in the sea.

I recently finished a BA in English Literature at Bristol University and now work part-time for an NGO. I trained with the Centre for Investigative Journalism, and my work has since been featured in Consented, Bristol International PEN and Rife Magazine.
