I've always loved poetry. It's amazing what a poem can do.
For many years, I performed regularly at Spoken Word nights in London and my poetry has been performed by Stand and Be Counted Theatre, the UK's first theatre company of sanctuary.
My poetry has also been used in a number of workshops for people experiencing mental health problems and psychosis.
In 2017, I won runner up 'best illustrated poem' in the Advocacy Project's mental health and poetry competition.
