"Studying at Goldsmiths was a life changing experience both academically and socially; still colouring my outlook to life today. Since graduating I have completed a Masters in Fashion Curation which led to the London Transport Museum commissioning an educational outreach project I designed, using archive transport uniforms as part of a handling collection.
Several years on I am working within a health care setting and currently developing a research project into the life threatening disease of sickle cell. The exhibition will consider a cross-disciplinary approach involving the patients of Homerton Hospital, academics in the field of sociology, medicine and artists. The plan for the exhibition is to grow in financial support and serve as a new exciting platform for sickle cell disease and offer a forum of debate for a considered educational outreach project received across the UK.
Goldsmiths has a strong tradition in working with the local community to broaden access to higher education and lifelong learning and I firmly believe that this approach has given me the tools to foster my own individual interests and curate exhibitions which aim to support marginalised groups.
I have such wonderful memories from Goldsmiths and I have remained in contact with so many of the students/tutors/local residents and for this Goldsmiths has a special place in my heart."
