Hi, I'm Kira!
I am a freelance journalist, and have written for Bustle, Black Ballad, GAY TIMES and more!
My main areas of interest are opinions, current affairs and consumerism. I have written lots of entertainment, celebrity, beauty and style news too. I’m particularly interested in sustainability in fashion, beauty and haircare, and bringing awareness to issues impacting Black people in the UK.
I’m currently completing my BA Journalism degree at City, University of London, where I have been appointed the leader of City’s African Caribbean Journalism Network, and Opinions editor of the university’s magazine, Carrot. I began freelancing alongside my studies in January 2021, writing for organisations with over 110 million combined monthly readers.
I’m an avid listener of podcasts, from pop culture to investigative journalism series and explainers. As a graduate, I’m keen to involve myself in radio and podcasting opportunities. I also like to take photographs, especially on my film camera! As a born and bred west Londoner, one of my favourite hobbies is discovering hidden gems to add to my ever-growing list of ‘Places to go’ and ‘Things to do’
