I got into the creative industry at 18 years old, it's something I just found on a random day and decided then and there this is what I'm going to do with my life. I remember thinking to myself, this is going to allow me to be myself and enjoy my work which was really important to me. I found it really exciting and for the first time, even though it sounds so cliché, I truly wanted to achieve something.

Since then, I haven’t really stopped, I’ve worked for a number of departments at the BBC such as World Service and Radio 4, I’m currently working at BBC Radio 1Xtra. I’ve also secured opportunities with the likes of MOBO Awards and Rampage Sound, presenting and gathering live social content whether at red carpets or movie premieres. Alongside this, I’m also a voiceover artist, in short, I talk a lot. 
If there’s one music star that I would like to be stuck in a lift with it would have to be the one and only Bad Gal RiRi. Aside from her music, which I love, I admire how confident and fearless she appears to be. Also, as a successful woman who doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon, I need to know her top three life hacks and if we’re stuck in the lift I have enough time to settle my excitement and ask. And who wouldn’t want to see the beauty in the flesh?
One song that I could listen to on repeat for the next year is T.O.K – Galang Gal. https://youtu.be/p1g5vDBvk7Y?si=IqIuxzVMYe-TEpxC
I just love a good time and every time I hear that song, I’m set for a good time.
