I joined Metal back in the turbulence of 2020 after graduating from University of Leeds with an MA in Corporate Communications, Marketing and Public Relations. Leeds is my hometown, but my family roots are firmly in the Caribbean. I’ve always had a huge passion for the arts, and when I’m not working on Metal’s socials, I’m running my own as a spoken word artist, writer, and anti-racist advocate. I write the blog ‘Ethereal Truth’ and here my writing explores the intersectionality particularly of race, feminism and more recently, class. You can usually find me performing my angry poetry about the world to anyone that will listen or looking after my plants. A book I encourage everyone to read to view the world from a different perspective is ‘A Small Place’ by Jamaica Kincaid. You won’t be disappointed!
