I’m a mature student and a full-time carer who’s currently enrolled in MA Black Studies at Birmingham City University and have recently obtained a 1st Class BSc (Hons) in Criminology, Criminal Justice and Youth Justice. As part of my final year, I completed empirical research exploring domestic abuse and intersectionality for my dissertation and would like to carry this research out as part of a PhD so will soon be writing a research proposal for 2023/24 intake.
I am a fully qualified Independent Domestic and Sexual Violence Advocate supporting individuals who have experienced domestic and/or sexual violence, working closely with Criminal Justice Agencies to advocate on their behalf.
My aim is to become a Criminology lecturer with a focus on Black studies, to share the knowledge I have learnt with others and add my name to the diversity figures in higher education as a Black woman. A Black curriculum has become mandatory in Wales, and I believe all students should have the opportunity to study this at university level within Wales.
I joined the Black Criminology Network as I am committed to sharing the expertise, I have gained over the years in my personal and professional life and supporting future Criminology students to realise their potential. As well as building on my knowledge from other like-minded individuals who share the same passion and commitment as myself.
