I joined as a trustee in 2018 after meeting Tina through my day time job for a women’s charity.
Having pursued a career in human rights law in London, I moved to Leeds in 2016 where I started working in the third sector. I’m passionate about supporting young people and people with vulnerabilities who are having multiple needs ignored thanks to austerity.
Getting involved with Freedom4Girls was a meaningful project for me for two reasons - in 2014 I was diagnosed with ME and therefore out of work for a huge period meaning I had no income and had to rely on family and friends to support me financially, including helping me access sanitary protection every month, and as a keen sports woman I want to be part of the campaign that enables, supports and empowers all young women to feel like they can reach their potentials through sport inspite of our monthly visitor from Mother Nature.
I have recently undertaken trips to Uganda, where I have partnered with the charity Netball Development Trust, to supply reusable packs and speak about periods!
