I really enjoy seeing positive role models and in particular positive black role models because there is often so much negativity surrounding black people in the media. But sometimes I forget that I am a positive black role model too! I was recently interviewed by the University College London (UCL) Alumni volunteering department where I was asked a series of questions about the volunteering I did when I was at UCL and the work I am doing now. It brought back a lot of memories and I remembered how much I learnt whilst volunteering. I think that my independence and communication were two of the skills that improved, as I was always going to new places and meeting different people, learning how to engage and adapt all the time.

The second interview was with Gosbert, (who is a fellow UCL Black and Minority Ethnic(BME) committee member) for his blog- The Hustle MBA. I was really honoured that he wanted to feature me on his website. I spoke about a number of my ventures and what the word 'hustle' means to me.
