I have been researching into, communicating and taking action on corporate power and social justice since I stumbled across the Climate Camp movement in the UK nearly a decade ago. Born in Brighton, I returned to the seaside town in 2012 to complete an MSc in Climate Change and Policy. Recently I have been helping coordinate international solidarity work with environmental defenders facing legal proceedings for their resistance to destructive “development” megaprojects. As well as getting involved in the dismantling of corporate power, I find joy in dancing, cooking unnecessarily spicy dishes and cat snuggles.
