I was born and raised in East London by a Trini father and Domincan mother. From the age of 14 I became a Christian and would volunteer in a homeless charity and was involved in community work. I have always had a passion for tackling social issues and inequalites. Hence I was driven to study BA Sociology. I did this degree at Goldsmiths Univeristy and completed a Masters in Psychology recently.
The combination of the subjects I have studied combined with life experiences growing up in East London has enabled me to have a good scope of good and bad issues which impact London communities. I have been inspired to put on podcasts that promote black excellence as I am of the opinion that there is a wealth of negative stories about people in our community.
The aim is to enlarge the narrative of black inspirational people in order to illustrate and produce a narrative of positive black role models from non celebrity status. The aim is not only to inspire people in the black community alone, but also to illustrate to other communities that we are not all into music and sports as the media portrays but we are a dynamic, diverse, creative and educated people who can fit into many spheres in society and progress with excellence. Another aim of the podcast is to highlight that sucess is attained through many routes by people from non celebrity backgrounds who make massive postive contributions to London communities. I believe it is important to give these people a platform to express their narrative of thier success stories.
