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. I was born and raised in Leeds, but my family roots are in the Caribbean. I’ve always had a huge passion for the arts, especially visual and performance. When I’m not working on Metal’s socials, I’m running my own as a spoken word artist, writer, and anti-racist advocate. You can usually find me performing my angry poetry about the world to anyone that will listen or looking after my plants. A few books I really enjoyed are ‘These Impossible Things’ by Salma El-Wardany, ‘People Person’ by Candice Carty-Williams and ‘A Small Place’ by Jamaica Kincaid.
