Her colleague’s experiences and struggles made her want to do something to tackle the financial hardship so many Londoners face. During her time studying, she became involved in campaigns around pay day lenders, the Living Wage and delivered financial literacy classes in sixth forms in East London.
When she completed her studies, she did an internship at Fair Money Advice organised through a partnership with her University. Her campaigning and internship experiences shifted her focus from International Development to looking at issues of poverty and financial inclusion in the UK. She was delighted to eventually become a Debt Adviser at Fair Money Advice to pursue her interest in tackling poverty in the UK.
