I live in Bradford; I am a Bradford for Everyone Ambassador (resident voice and influence), I am Citizen Coin Officer with Braford Council and I am an entrepreneur.
Being a Bradford Ambassador has enabled me to explore Bradford’s beauty and connect with people and organisations in a way that I wouldn’t have otherwise, in fact, that it how I came to join People’s Powerhouse -Racial Justice Network. In my time as an ambassador and as a People’s Powerhouse Racial Justice Advocate, I have developed a growing hunger for positive transformation, I strive to make Bradford, the UK and the world a better place.
I came to England many years ago from ‘the warm heart of Africa’ and I have lived in Bradford for over 17 years.
I have immense passion for equality development in all its forms, racial justice being one. In fact, recently, I have stumbled upon two words of which I think are key in any real change ” economic development”. When these words are overlooked, manipulated for self-interest, and ignored, inequality happens, and the gap thereof widens.
As a community activist/ advocate and businesswoman, I do what I do because I want to see “economic development” applied fairly across society. These two words go on to fuel me to create jobs for people who may otherwise not have one. I also want to empower people to have a voice, to speak, to be heard to act positively on their experiences. I want people to tune into existing programmes and positive interventions, to create new ones, to gain knowledge, to get involved to connect with other people who also crave for change. I want us all, regardless of who we are and where we come from to be free, like Martin Luther Jr said, “No one if free until we are all free”.
