I first joined StreetDoctors as a volunteer in September 2018, when I was impressed by the innovative way they tackle youth violence. After graduating with a BSc in Paramedic Science, I worked as a paramedic for a year but I was increasingly interested in my social action work, from running a community group in Hackney to being a StreetDoctors volunteer, so I was very excited at the opportunity to join the central team.

I was born and raised in Hackney, and coupled with my experiences as a paramedic, I have witnessed the effects of youth violence. I welcome this opportunity to enable young people to change their lives.
