Though I was born in England, Guernsey has been my home for 18 years and a family home for generations. Like many locals, my family history stretches through the occupation with some of my relatives being deported, some evacuated and others remaining in the island throughout.

The other side of my family hails from Zimbabwe and this dichotomy of identity has driven me to explore and embrace a diversity of cultures and ideas.

In my spare time, I am passionate about writing and listening to performance poetry and Hip-Hop music. I have a Creative Writing degree after studying at the Arts University Bournemouth which led me to further education in psychology and philosophy.

I returned to Guernsey this summer and co-founded the campaign group Guerns Against Discrimination – a group dedicated to equality for islanders. This thirst for change is why I have decided to step forward and be considered for election. I want to do what I can to improve our amazing island. 

I love Guernsey and I am proud to live here. I see the island as one of the most amazing places on the planet with the potential to be an inspiration to the rest of the world. I am standing for election in the island’s first island-wide vote because I believe I bring a fresh, diverse perspective to our States of Deliberation. I want to ensure all islanders, including the youth of Guernsey and marginalised groups, get a chance to be heard. I believe that for the island to move forward, we must respect the voices of all islanders.

I am standing for election in the island’s first island-wide vote because I believe I bring a fresh, diverse perspective to our States of Deliberation. I want to represent all islanders and give a platform to those who may not yet be heard.
