“For as long as I can remember I have always had the greatest interest in storytelling; I believe it’s the most powerful form of communication we have, and by telling stories I wish to raise awareness and create real change by crafting narratives and sharing others’ stories, and have done so for many years via writing, making it core to much of what I do”
