I am an experienced Business Development Consultant within the civic & social organisation industry. Skilled in negotiation, alcohol Licensing, business Planning, operations Management. a strong business development professional with a NVQ Level 4 focused in 'Education & Training'. After receiving diagnoses for both Autism and ADHD at the age of 26, I experienced an array of emotions and mental challenges and an instant need for specific support. I found a lack of representation, inclusion and culturally appropriate support services available to me post diagnosis.
As a successful Business Development Consultant,
I founded Mask Off to highlight and raise awareness around Autism, ADHD and Mental Health within the Black and Minority Ethnic communities. Mask Off strives to empower, educate and de-stigmatise Neuro-diversity and Mental Health, with the aim to highlight racial and gender disparities and inequalities faced by service users, their families and carers.
Through my lived experience, I continue to share my journey and campaign for legislative change, equality, diversity, inclusion and vast improvement on appropriate support services available for some of the most vulnerable.
