An avid reader, I like dividing my time between reading and discussing books. I recently graduated from King’s College London, where I spent a year studying for a Master’s in Contemporary Literature, Culture and Theory. Prior to that, I completed a degree in English Literature at the University of York. I was introduced to the professional world by way of First Story, a charity that sets up creative-writing programmes in schools serving low-income communities. I worked there for just over a year as a Fundraising and Marketing Assistant before starting as Jo’s assistant. When I’m not reading, I enjoy watching stand-up comedy or sad films: it depends on my mood. At other times I like to draw pictures and paint old pots or glass.
