I joined WEP in 2016, a political novice - I was excited to finally see a party putting women front and centre to tackle the structural inequalities I had always seen around me.

Fast forward 18 months and I was inspired to stand in the local council elections. It was my first experience of standing for public office and WEP’s first ever candidate in Islington. Incredibly, WEP came a resounding second place to Labour with votes from over 21% of voters. I believe this is because we focused firmly on canvassing and voters saw that we offered a real alternative to the political status quo.

I am now proud to be co-leading the Islington branch. We are aiming to grow our diverse membership and are already planning a local election strategy for 2022.

Outside of WEP, I practised as a city lawyer for over 14 years and have also sat on the governing body of an Islington school for the last four years.

I am hugely optimistic about WEP’s chances of success in the GLA election. As a lifelong Londoner, it would be a privilege to represent the party as a London list candidate.
