I’m a freelance writer, teacher, journalist and editor, situated somewhere between the UK and Guyana. I recently graduated from a Masters in Creative Writing and Education at Goldsmiths, University of London.
I am currently working as a workshop facilitator with We Speak and Refugee Youth’s Amazing People of the World project, as well as a library assistant and freelance journalist. I also volunteer with the Ministry of Stories in Hoxton, and am running a creative-writing workshop series for Middleground Magazine.
My creative writing has been published in The London Reader, Commonwealth Writers’ ADDA Stories and was shortlisted for the Flipside Festival’s 2017 Green Alphabet Writing Prize and Rebel Women Lit’s Caribbean Readers’ Award (Non Fiction – Individual Pieces) 2020.
As a journalist, I have produced articles, radio packages and online content for many different platforms, including BBC World Service, Mongabay, Gal-Dem, Private Eye, The Guardian, and The Pavement. I have also also taught communications at the University of Guyana as a part-time lecturer, and been part of Peabody and BAFTA Award winning teams.
