My career journey into broadcast journalism started in 2014 when I interviewed artists and competition winners for a live exhibition which promoted small black businesses in Manchester. It was here that I got my first taste of presenting and I absolutely fell in love with it. From then, I pursued a career in radio until I finally completed my MA in TV Journalism in July 2020, where I was able to perfect my skills in producing, interviewing and visual storytelling in front and behind the camera.
