I was out of work for over ten years as I had children and felt my skills needed updating and prior to this I worked in charitable style organisations , arts and education regeneration charities in London.

I took out a 10 k CDL in 2019 from the Co-Op and applied to Sussex University for an MA in Digital Media which I passed with a Merit – I did not have any knowledge of Apple/Adobe software and could not even switch on the computer !I was inspired by the new developments in online media especially the importance of children learning digital skills in a society that is becoming automated very quickly. I wrote my dissertation on the ‘Bridging the Digital Divide’ and wanted to contribute to this . The aim is to attract children from low socio economic backgrounds into technology industries. I have participated in Sussex University Accelerator programmes and Her Biz for start ups. I have also been a runner up in the Start Up Sussex ‘Innovation Center’ competition.
