Finance Admin Assistant
I'm the Finance Admin Assistant here at Speakers Corner. Born and raised in the heart of South London, as a child I had the chance to go back to my sunny island of Jamaica, where I stayed for a year or so before moving to the peaceful Grand Cayman Islands for a while and then returning to England to start school.
As a naturally sporty person, I gravitated towards athletics which I turned out to be really good at. With months of rigorous training and healthy eating, I started competing in various competitions around the UK and quickly got used to the number 1 spot on the podium. With hopes of eventually competing in the Olympics, I dedicated all my spare time specializing in high jump and excelled, before suffering a terrible foot injury which put an end to my short but amazing sports career.
After accepting the fact that I wouldn’t be able to compete anymore, my focus was on my studies, where I realized I had a passion for numbers. Excelling in maths and economics, I decided I wanted to work with numbers as a career and searched for an Accountancy apprenticeship. I found an excellent one at Speakers Corner and am now on my path to becoming a Chartered Accountant.
When not at work, I’d most probably be in the gym or in the park under a tree with a paperback; if not, I’ll be getting stuck into a new anime and driving everyone in my house mad pretending to be an anime character.
