I have experience in broadcast, particularly in radio and podcasting.
I worked for the BBC’s News Podcasts team as a Journalism Researcher between March and August of 2022. As part of my role, I did extensive research on stories relating to Black Britons as well as contributing to editing and writing interview questions and briefs for the presenter.
After doing my own research on the amount of air time Black Love Islanders get, I had the opportunity to speak on the podcast myself in June.
If you are interested in having me as a guest on a podcast or a radio show, or for any video and audio commissions, please go to my contact page to discuss any potential work.
In 2022, I created a documentary for Don’t Google It, looking into the experiences of trans-racial adoptees.
Previously, I was a guest on the Jobs Bored and Views Our Own podcasts, discussing my journalism career thus far. I also created the Chilling Children podcast with three fellow students at university, and edited the project single-handedly using Adobe Audition. I now co-host a podcast about diversity in the media with Sabah Hussain and Asyia Iftikhar, which is available on Spotify.
I have also been a guest on BBC 5 Live discussing Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s rhetoric in blaming students and young people for the surge in Coronavirus cases in September 2020.
At university, I had two highly successful radio shows: The Lit Lab and The Jaded Project. The Jaded Project was a weekly radio show on Fridays at 12pm that aimed to platform minority voices and discuss big issues such as mental health, the LGBTQ+ community, women, and BAME communities too.
The Lit Lab was a weekly radio show on Fridays at 11am that did a deep dive into one book or play in each show. We also did ‘specials’ where we would interview the cast members of the plays and musicals put on by the Drama Society, Shakespeare Society and the Musical Theatre Society, which were extremely popular.
