Isabel Adomakoh Young


Half Ghanaian, half English and fully a Londoner, I recently graduated in English from Trinity College, Cambridge. My mum and I wrote the bestselling children’s books, the Lionboy trilogy, together, which later became a Complicite show. I’m on the team that runs Brainchild Festival, and am a compulsive reader of almost everything! When I can stop reading for long enough, I’m an enthusiastically intersectional feminist and activist; I’ve been known to write essays, blogs and (far too frequently) status updates. I am Jo’s assistant.
