I am currently in my second year studying chemistry at Loughborough.

Alongside this, I train 5+ times a week for the 400m and am the founder of the Nice Running society which I lead twice a week with friends.

Previous to studying chemistry at Loughborough, I completed an Art Foundation focusing on Fashion Design - I try my best to keep up my creative practice and continue to seek collaborations and events to attend and be involved in. I have an ongoing relationship with Nike, who support Nice Running, and recently had a photoshoot for their next running campaign. I modelled in London Fashion Week in mid-February, for which I had to go bald!

International Women's Day was first highlighted to me by Volt Women who every year organise a worldwide run ‘to move together, connect and honour women’s rights and existence in this world’. Every day is a women's day, but to mentally engage, connect and interact, with a strong attitude and motivation, for women you do or don't know is powerful and something I want to shout about.
