My greatest achievement is raising my four children - aged 21, 18, 13 and 8. I have had a few businesses including a successful wedding and design consultancy - but my life has centred on them, putting all our energy and resources into helping them to be the best they can be! When my eldest entered medicals chool 3 years ago, I decided to return to study and start a Nutrition BSc.
I won Start-up St Mary’s Santander Prize and achieved a First in my degree alongside an Outstanding Achievement Award for my degree. I also won a Studentship from the UK Nutrition Society and presented my results on effects culture and lifestyle factors including racial discrimination on health inequalities in BME UK populations. I am now doing a Masters in Chronic Disease Management.
My second daughter’s now started Law at Cardiff and my 13 year old has been featured on BBC2 at his grammar school. My youngest received 2 awards at school for his hard work which means the world to me as he is growing in confidence! Raising the next generation of young, gifted and Black children alongside my wonderfully supportive husband is and always will be my greatest achievement!
