I am a qualified lawyer, a wife and a mother of two children who were born and raised in Swansea. I consider myself to be a Welsh African lady who is committed to community cohesion and serving the community of which I am part.
I am delighted to have been selected to stand for the local government election as a Labour Party candidate for the Uplands Ward.
Having taught law for over nine years at the Swansea Institute (now called the Swansea Metropolitan University) in the Uplands ward and being active in an Uplands based church called Pantygwydr Baptist Church for many years, it will be a privilege to serve the Uplands communities and work alongside my Welsh Labour colleagues in listening to your views, understanding your needs and representing your interests.
In addition to campaigning for election as one of your Uplands ward council representatives, I am chief executive officer of the Race Council Cymru. Prior to that I worked as a principal equality and diversity officer for South Wales Police, responsible for positive action and their equalities policies.
I am also a founder and former chair of the Swansea African Community Centre, a former trustee with the Atlantic College board, and a former trustee with the British Red Cross, as part of which I had oversight of their work in Wales.
If elected, I look forward to serving you to the best of my abilities.
