Media Mentions

In December 2019, I wrote an opinion piece for the Daily Mail on whether Mr Men books were sexist. You can read the article here.

In September 2020, I was featured in Woman’s Own in an article on ‘lockdown rebels’ all about working with sports people to raise funds for zoos by using my Animalympics story. Unfortunately the article isn’t online, but you can read all about the story on my own website here.

I’m honoured to have been included in my local newspaper, the Halstead Gazette, on a number of occasions. You can find the articles here.
