I coordinate our peer support project for young asylum seekers, refugees and migrants in Croydon and North West London.

I have an MSc in Education, Power and Social Change from Birkbeck, for which my research focused on how young peoples’ involvement with participatory learning projects lead to engagement in activities for social change. I also volunteer at a drop in advice centre for adult refugees and asylum seekers.
