Register of Interests


Born and raised in Leigh having attended West Leigh Schools and Belfairs Academy over a 12 year stint before leaving the town to study at Seevic College for 2 years, I'm currently studying at The University Of East London where I've been since 2018.


My career in local affairs so far has seen me become a member of the Young Essex Assembly, Castle Point Youth Council and most notably Southend Youth Council over the last 6 years. I remain devoted to helping the residents in Leigh, Southend and beyond.


My hobbies involve watching any sort of football from Southend United in League 1 to Leigh Town in the Essex Olympian League. I'm also keen on studying history ranging from the Medieval period to recent times and I'm also a keen sports photographer having been accredited at Wembley Stadium quite a few times over the last 18 months. I'm also a keen fan of musical theatre.
