Public Speaking & Video Media
I have had the opportunity to speak at professional and academic conferences, discussions and debates, local schools, seminars; and in several video interviews and promos. Throughout my experience, I have had the pleasure of speaking about my research, a range of social issues such as colourism, hate and hate crimes, Black mental health, lack of diversity in industries and academia, inclusive education and my own journey. My most acclaimed speaking experiences include: Covering a special Windrush segment LIVE on Al Jazeera News; Speaking at the Leading Routes: Academic Festival 'Disrupting the Discourse'; Chairing a Museum of British Colonialism event; Presenting a key-note at an ING Bank (BEING+) event and much more.
ACTIVISM: 'BEYOND MARGINS'
The 'Beyond Margins' project is a way of creating hyper-visibility for the under-appreciated/unrecognised work of BAME people and aims to build a mutually beneficial relationship between students and the community. As the founder of this organisation, I am committed to social justice campaigning and activism alongside a wonderful team of inspiring individuals.
