Head of Philanthropy
WHAT MAKES ME HOPEFUL?
Being in community with people in the creative, justice and liberation spaces, particularly those led by and created for people of colour.
WHAT MAKES YOU ANGRY?
The myth which is perpetuated by mainstream media and institutions that society is politically apathetic, as a means of then keeping society submissive to these institutional forces.
I have over eight years of experience in trusts, statutory and lottery fundraising both in the UK and international development contexts, cultivating and growing key relationships, securing critical funding. I now oversee philanthropy at The Advocacy Academy, bringing a breadth of partnership management experience with me.
I enjoy all things social commentary, which probably explains why I love a bit of everything. Talk to me about books, music, sport, TV, podcasts, art, food, fashion and I'll want to unpick the socio-political contexts behind them all. I also love eating, cooking and generally sharing love through food.
