My Story

Making women successful in a changing world through equity & allyship, social mobility, gender, disability & race, and neuro-diversity & disability.


Equity & Allyship

Equity - “equity” refers to fairness and justice - equity means recognising that we do not all start from the same place and must acknowledge and make adjustments to imbalances.

Equality means providing the same to all. Black women are disproportionally represented in the Tech Sector. With the rise of AI Robotic automation and post covid-19 black women were already disadvantage and onset to experiencing early mental issues. According to the World Economic Forum Report The future of work, there will be 192 million jobs by 2030. If we are not digitally equipped, then we will be left behind.

Having to deal with the lack of Early investments, educational attainment, earning, pay, wealth, housing and mental health gaps black women are discriminated in every aspect of society. I’m leading on the Global #BeMedigitalinclusion program with key stakeholders to re address the gender and digital skills gap.

This is done twofold. Supporting the #BeMedigitalinclusion - Mentoring - Visits: DE&I - Work experience - Training - Network Tech events DE&I developing policies around what this looks like and get our #BeMedigitalinclusion women involve at the planning design. This is a game changer.


Social Mobility: Socioeconomic Status

I came from a two-parent family home I did not want for anything. I became pregnant at 18, and suddenly, I was living in a high rise flat, on the 11 th floor, on income support and my status had changed overnight to a single parent mother. Although this was short lived, I hated it. I struggled financially for the first three months of moving into my flat, after having my child after one month I got a job in a Bank near London Bridge, completing my degree and doing my Master in the evenings helped me to move up the socio-economic ladder. By the time my child was three I was a homeowner.

It is interesting how this word socio-economic can have such a negative connation attached to it all because of the amount of financial, social, and professional capital one has compared to another the perception is that of a lower class.

When we unpack how this word is attached to someone, it really impacts an individual at home, work, the wider society, on their confidence, cultural fit, personal attitudes, and career journey.



As a child I always looked up to my mothers and her sisters. Their parents were relatively poor. From that small house in Jamaica Enfield, Annotto Bay.

Social mobility helped them out of poverty, they all studied and were able to secure good jobs. Their low socio- economic status changed overnight.

Seeing this as a child, I was able to use this same approach when I had my child. I knew education was the only way out at the time.

I wanted to be my child’s role model! Although I could feel the system challenges from working, I did not realise how bad it was until I attended the Wintrade Week 2019. As I sat and listened to Alison Rose speaking about the lack of women in leadership roles – I started to ask questions about Black and Brown women representation. After winning the Global Wintrade Award category: Women in Engineering, I realised that black women in Tech sector was literally non-existent. I could not breathe. It was that moment I decided that I would be ruthless with the #BeMedigitialnclusion of raising one million black women and girls’ aspiration in STEM | Web 3 related careers.

When I look through the intersectional lens of my personal lived journey I see: My blackness, my disability; gender, race and being a mother – the days I would have to rush back to collect my child from the nanny or afterschool club, late night studies and the challenge of understanding the text because of my learning difficulty.


Gender | Disability | Race

Being a woman comes with many challenges – I did not fully understand this until I came to Ghana! It was difficult to navigate a space where men dominated and having to know my place and having so much knowledge and experience within the Tech space. Despite these challenges, I still maintain my integrity and remained in my lane and kept pushing no matter what.

My cultural experiences both British and having Jamaican heritage did not prepare me for this. Yet still the peace that passes all understanding – empowered to rise like never before.


Neuro-diversity & Disability

As a child, I have always found it a challenge to retain information. I had to read something 100 times and made sure I understood it before I could apply that knowledge. It took me longer to learn things. But once I got it, then it was a game changer. I remember being assessed by a psychologist – they were impressed with my results. I did not get the basis answers right but the more difficult ones. I loved music – I read it, I loved maths – don’t ask me why – but I did. I loved Tech and bright colours.

My learning difficultly was my way of pushing harder and doing my best. Trust me I failed so many times, that I cannot even begin to tell you the amount of time I got up. Now I’m here.
