Favourite thing about SKIP… Our involvement with project Mwezi, which aims to reduce the number of girls who miss school due to being on their period. As part of our involvement with the project, we hold classes to teach girls how to create cheap, hygienic and reusable sanitary towels which otherwise can be very expensive. By providing a cheaper alternative, we aim to help girls feel enabled to attend school while on their period. I'm looking forward to seeing the impact of this project in the communities we visit and seeing how we can further our involvement with Project Mwezi in the future. 

SKIP history… I first got involved with SKIP in 2016 where I applied to be a volunteer at the University of Glasgow's branch. In the summer of 2017, I travelled to Malawi for 5 weeks as one of the Monitoring and Evaluation officers. From 2017 to 2019, I sat on the committee for SKIP Glasgow, where I held the positions of logistics coordinator and treasurer. I started my current role on the national committee in September 2019!

Ask me about… I love cycling and running and visiting the lochs around Glasgow!

Outside of SKIP… I am a fourth-year History student at the University of Glasgow and I am currently preparing for writing my dissertation.
