Candidate for North Devon
I am from Barnstaple. I went to Park School, the same school as both my parents and grandmother.
I lived and worked in London, and then Cardiff as a kitchen porter and chef. While there, I volunteered for homelessness projects and got involved in anti-austerity protests.
In 2016, I worked for a small non-profit organisation in Northern Greece feeding people fleeing the conflicts in Iraq and Syria. I was responsible for food provision to a small camp.
I returned to North Devon, primarily to care for my granddad after he suffered a series of minor strokes. He is now being looked after by one of our excellent care homes, and I visit regularly.
I joined the Green Party because I believe they are the only party with the joined-up, rational solutions to the problems society faces today.
Other parties separate ‘the environment’ as a fringe issue to be solved independently, or even at the cost of, other priorities. They believe that working to increase quality of life necessarily goes against preserving our natural environment. The Green Party knows that the only solutions are holistic. Reducing our impact on the world’s climate goes hand-in-hand with solving the biggest problems of our daily lives.
I was elected as a local councillor for Barnstaple Town Council and North Devon Council this May and now I’m taking the fight to the next level.
