I was inspired to start Swansea News Network by taking part in the Paris Climate Agreement Protests and realising there is an increased and urgent need for improved connectivity between communities. I work as a Head Gardener. My background has included gardening under the Westway in London, managing a park in Brixton, launching an environmental education centre, community landscape projects and an award-winning canalside regeneration scheme. I also helped set up a new Youth Club in Hackney, London whilst working with Groundwork Hackney. I was a London Editor for the NY-based aRUDE magazine, an intern at The Guardian and Independent on Sunday, have a fashion degree in menswear.
