‘Oh, to be so loved’ is more than a cute phrase though, it a lifestyle. It is a state of mind and healthy view of myself and my life.
It has always been my intention to pull people up with me while I rise. What I mean by this is, whenever I learn something, I try to pass on that knowledge.
I have finished my four year Journalism Studies with Employment Experience degree at the University of Sheffield.
I was recently commissioned to write a short version of my dyslexia story for Metro.co.uk and that can be read here.

A couple of weeks ago I confirmed a new freelance client. I will be providing social and digital media help, alongside some PR, photography and marketing support. It was very exciting to be hired by a business to do this because it is essentially what I do for myself and have done for other people […]

My sister and I spent four days and four nights in Portugal’s beautiful capital city, Lisbon (Lisboa). We had the best time and I have gone on to christen this little getaway my best trip yet! Lisbon is a nice sized city so you can walk about it very comfortably but also have a lot […]
Originally written for the Royal Television Society and posted here When I learnt of the Royal Television Society (RTS) bursaries in 2015, I knew I had to apply. Any organisation actively committed to the diversification and inclusion of underrepresented groups within the British media will always hold a place in my heart. Plus, being […]
My sister and I had an amazing time in Portugal’s capital city, Lisbon! I have put together a little lookbook of the outfits I wore over the four days and four nights. Lisbon was amazing!
