I am a British writer, presenter and teacher/coach, based in NYC, who specializes in application essays, academic writing and public speaking.

I am also experienced in working with students with LBLD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia and Autism at High School and College levels, on writing, reading, organizational skills and time management.

I am a poet, rapper and singer - google my name to watch my TED Talk!

I have presented, taught and consulted for TED, Kate Spade, Cooper Union, No Barriers, Philadelphia Soul, the Fulbright Commission and many, many more, as well as private students - students and adult professionals.

I came to the USA in 2015 on a Fulbright Scholarship. I now read on the US-UK Fulbright Summer Institute Panels and UK-US Annual Awards Panels. I am also the 2019-20 "Fulbright Alumna in Residence" in New York City.

In 2017 I was selected as a scholar, and performed at events around the USA alongside Cynthia Nixon, Jennifer Garner, Shantell Martin, Casey Neistat, Kevin Eubanks and more. I opened for Shane Koyczan at his sold out NYC show in 2017 and also sang the National Anthem at the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia to 10,000 people the same year.

I am an experienced teacher and founder of non-profit, Sound Board NYC, a project which brings rap, poetry, creative writing and music workshops to underserved communities around the city. I was featured on Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation in 2017 with this work, having won the P.E.O. International Peace Prize in 2016 for work to create more educational opportunities for young people.

I love helping people say what they want to say in the most effective way, and helping to empower students to showcase their unique talent and light. Book me for help with any sort of writing or presenting, and also organizational skills/life coaching!
