I’m a writer and Journalism (BA) student at London College of Communication, with an insatiable curiosity and desire to start conversations about contemporary human issues.

 

My writing ranges from features about philosophy, feminism, social justice, nature, death and mental health, to corporate copy for various companies such as graphene company Paragraf, tech startup Multiplii, and creative community SuperHi.

I'm also the founder of Cringe, an independent magazine exploring shame and self-consciousness through writing and art,

and co-founder of Seriously Human, a journalistic project to tell stories against the framework of human rights.

I was hired for a short-term contract to conduct market research, in which I held up to 40 minute long interviews with random participants over the phone, followed the company’s guidelines from supervisors to ensure the questionnaires followed protocol, but also learned to occasionally deviate from the script to motivate the participants and meet their unique questions and needs.
