I grew up on council estates in Bradford and still live in the community.
I am an activist and anti-poverty and anti-racist campaigner and I have a youth and community degree from Bradford University (2008)
I have worked in factories, as a hospital cleaner and care worker.
As a volunteer, I ran play groups and I am a founder member of Hope Rising Action Group, campaigning against austerity.
I have worked for a Young Peoples Housing Project, as a Community Health Development worker and also worked as a Volunteer Coordinator and Community Worker.
Currently, I work at Bradford Community Broadcasting radio station, where I am the Engagement Worker for Marginalised Communities.
