Project Designer, Martin’s Corner

Why I wanted to join the team

I have lived in Barking my whole life. I watched the atmosphere in this small East London Town flourish and thrive with the projects from Every One Every Day changing the game in participatory culture and empowering the community. I wanted to be part of the change to better the borough. My nan moved here in the 50’s and my Mum was born in the 70’s, I want to make this town that my family call home, safer and happier.
