Say hello to the team
Our core team is comprised of individuals from diverse disciplines, united by a common passion for justice.

She's known by those who love her and dislike her, to be fiercely opinionated, quick to pen her thoughts down on paper, and obsessed (a healthy amount) with mental-wellbeing and dance.
