I'm a data journalist currently working at ICIS, having had experience with The Telegraph and The Times. My passion is telling stories through numbers and statistics. I am also the author of the eBook: Dear Depression: Letters of Comfort and Hope When Feeling Alone.
Having experienced the profound impact depression can have first-hand, I have always felt a responsibility to help others who may be experiencing pain. For that reason, I have written an eBook, which is a collection of 30 letters I would have sent to my younger self in the hope it can help others. All the money raised from the sales will be donated to the Mental Health Foundation in the UK.
Worked as a sports data journalist, primarily focussing on analysis of athletes' performances in women's sport, particularly football, tennis and athletics. Also interviewed athletes about their journey in sport and how they overcame difficulties like injury or disability.
Worked as a data journalism fellow, primarily focussing on writing stories through the use of numbers and statistics. Used R programming and Adobe Illustrator to create charts and graphs for stories in sport, politics and lifestyle. Wrote stories on the Women's World Cup in football, the Ashes in cricket and polling analysis.
Worked as an interviewer and writer for the podcast. Wrote analysis articles for the website on tennis and the FIFA Women's World Cup. Also interviewed short track speed skater Ethan Treacy and young badminton player Hope Warner for episodes on the podcast.
Worked as a sports desk trainee during my sports journalism course, where my focus was on researching statistics for graphics and charts, used for the publication. Specialist knowledge of cricket was used during the England versus India test series in 2018 and also during England's cricket tours of Sri Lanka and the West Indies.
Contributed to a range of interviews, features and video content for the publication during my sports journalism course. Work was not limited to just sport, also covered topics such as campaigns in south west London, homelessness and interviewing actors.
