Hi. What can I tell you about me. I'm a mum of three primary aged children, I'm a local councillor in Hounslow where I lead on Adult Social Care and Health, I've just started working at Feltham Young Offenders as a Children's Rights advocate for Barnardos and I'm standing for Labour to be the South West Assembly member. I am fully committed to the South West where I have lived, worked and served the community for 16 years. I want to see everyone achieving their potentials and being able to fully participate in the things our city and the south west has to offer, without being held back by life circumstances, inequality and injustice.
