• LLB (Hons) Law, Sheffield Hallam University • MA in Applied Human Rights, Sheffield Hallam University
In 2015, I joined Sheffield Hallam as an undergraduate Law student. Following the completion of my degree, I worked for a renowned law firm as a legal advisor, providing advice to clients about various areas of the law. During this time, I attended the first humanitarian trip to Lesotho and South Africa in 2019 which was organised by the Department of Law and Criminology with the charity Africa’s Gift. Upon returning I decided to do my MA in Applied Human Rights which I completed in 2020, for which I was awarded a distinction. During this time, I took up the role of Associate Lecturer within the Department of Law and Criminology. I continued this until 2021, whereby I was offered the position of Lecturer in Law and Human Rights.
As a part of my undergraduate degree I was awarded the Streetlaw Schools and Urban Lawyers Prize Awarded for delivering the best Streetlaw presentation to schools across the year and for my MA I was awarded the Albie Sachs Africa’s Gift Prize, Awarded to the Department of Law and Criminology student who has made a significant contribution to international human rights work in the Helena Kennedy Centre. I have a specialist interest in Gender-based violence, including domestic and sexual violence. I have a particular interest in the use of education to lessen the prevalence of sexual violence on both the national and international stage.
