I am a poet and spoken word artist whose well received pamphlet and spoken word show focuses on the lives of young women within urban communities. I have been published in several literary anthologies and performed as feature poet at acclaimed literary and arts nights across the UK and Ireland.
I also have extensive experience as an educator working primarily with adult learners at a community college. I have also worked across Secondary Education and Early Years, as well as with young adults and vulnerable families in Community Education and Outreach settings.
I have a particular interest in working within youth and inner city community settings, as well as providing workshops on public speaking.
