I started out my working life as a freelance illustrator. My work regularly featured in newspapers and magazines such as The Guardian, Observer and New Statesman. Over time, I became more engaged in campaigning on social justice, human rights and refugee issues. So, eventually I became a campaigner, press officer and all-round communications professional for the Fairtrade Foundation where I worked for almost a decade. Since then, I have worked for many inspiring international development and advocacy organisations.
