Your role/title at Apart of Me:

I’m one of the Communications volunteers.

Is there someone or something that you love that isn’t here anymore?

Stability and a sense of my place in the world. It wasn’t explained to me that I could grieve my parents’ divorce, or the fact I had grown up with a sense of foreboding, just waiting for it to happen. So I repressed any feelings I had about that, and ever since, I’ve been living with a sense of insecurity and alienation.

What is guaranteed to make you laugh?

Brooklyn 99 and my two-year-old nephew, who likes to try to eat cookies even as he is falling asleep.

List some silly facts about you:

I’m in the bottom 0.5% for height in the UK, and I drink gravy and custard shamelessly right out of the jug - not together, at least.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

Whenever you feel like despairing with yourself, love others.
