I’m a journalist based in London, and I write about politics, mental health, feminism and pop culture.

My work has been published in the Guardian, the Sunday Times, the Telegraph, the IndependentNew Statesman, Vice, Dazed and Confused, Metro.co.uk and Buzzfeed, among others.

I'm currently working on a children's book that makes the importance of emotional regulation and mental wellbeing accessible to a young audience.

As a writer and campaigner, I believe that I have a duty to use my platform to call for positive change.

That's why I write about the consequences of austerity and how political policy affects the lives of the most vulnerable people in Britain.

It's why I work to break down stigma around mental health issues and highlight the ways in which many sufferers are currently being failed through inadequate service provision.

It's also why I write in support of women, people of colour, LGBTQA folks and those with disabilities, and try to challenge bigotry through high-quality, engaging journalism. 

Unfortunately, I need some extra financial support at the moment, due to discrimination, ill-health and benefit changes (specifically the shift to Universal Credit).

I would be incredibly grateful if you could help me during this stage of my journey, and allow me to continue writing and creating, and using journalism to tackle prejudice and injustice.

It will also keep my two cats happily in Dreamies.
Tiers
Cup of tea

Stand me a brew each month. There's nothing more magical than the restorative powers of a good cup of tea. 
Sandwich

Buy me a sandwich to stop me writing while hangry. My favourite is cheese and pickle. 
Whiskas

Keep my two felines (Luna the tortoiseshell and Purrnest Hemmingway the tuxedo cat) fat and friendly with this monthly donation. 
Public transport

I try to walk as much as possible, but sometimes I have to take buses, tubes or trains. Help me get across London for research and interviews.
