I have been visually impaired since birth owing to retinopathy of prematurity. I have a BSc in Genetic’s and a Masters in Computing. My career path as lead to managing the running of senior Government Ministers.
My vision has significantly deteriorated in recent years following several major surgeries, strengthening my passion to influence positive change in raising sight loss awareness and strategically support the VI Community. I do motivational talks on sight loss amongst ethnic Minority groups. I work with other leading sight loss organisations including charing a VI forum at Vista and promoting accessible streets in national campaigns at RNIB, where I’m also a Network Committee member. I support NFBUK colleagues with our shared space campaigning and I’m an active officer within London Branch, having successfully organised the 2019 Eastbourne social weekend for 95 people. A firm believer in seeing great things happen when connecting VIPs, I’ve successfully organised small and large-scale trips nationally.
Getting active within NFB has been a great privilege and I’ve been empowered by how we have successfully amplified our voice through campaigning and built new collaborations.
My hobbies include sailing, travel,golf and following Leicester City.
