I’m originally from Birmingham and lived there my entire life until recently moving to Swansea to undertake my new role of tutor of criminology at the University.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Youth Communities and Families at the University of Birmingham part-time whilst working in a mentoring capacity with young people alongside work within the special educational needs sector supporting students with additional needs. After this I embarked upon completing my Masters in Criminology at Birmingham City University and also began work with the Youth Offending Team Sandwell, working with a wide array of young people from vast multi-cultural backgrounds.
This led me to work as a Visiting Lecturer at Birmingham City University where my role included delivering lectures/seminars and supporting students with any pastoral issues. After a year of this role I wanted to challenge myself in a greater way and this lead me to gaining full time employment at Swansea University where the next exciting chapter of my career begins.
