About The Lady of the World

Welcome to The Lady Of The World website.Thank you so much for stopping here.

I’m a filmmaker and a freelance Journalist and Writer. I currently collaborate with The Independent, and Metro.co.uk . I also contribute to Thrive Global.Previously, I wrote on a freelance basis for the Huffington Post .

I have also done TV Appearances at the BBC live programme, Victoria Derbyshire.

As a  Filmmaker  I have a portfolio of professional films I’ve written and directed. I have directed the all female cast feature film  “Campo De Batalla” . My short film “Rescue Me“, won the Golden Palm at the Mexico International film festival and I was one of the first filmmakers to be invited to the Berlinale Talent Campus during the Berlin Film Festival. In May you can sometimes spot me in The Cannes Film Festival . I have directed and acted in some of my films such as these two:  The Invisible Woman and I love You Not 

I studied English Philology at University and I’m the proud owner of a B.A (Hons) English. Afterwards , I completed a Masters in Filmmaking at Goldsmiths College, University of London. I also studied Piano and Musical notation for 5 years as well as Dramatic Art. Studying literature gave me the skills to be a prolific journalist.I have done popular journalism and storytelling classes in London, at Guardian Masterclasses and The Faber Academy.

I have a part time job at the House of Commons. Working for the UK Parliament has made me very keen on politics. This working experience continues to be a very enriching one for a writer and filmmaker who finds clay for her art in daily life.

I was a placard bearer in the London 2012 Olympics.I went to a casting and Danny Boyle chose me to be one of the girls walking alongside the flag bearers of each country during the Athletes Parade of both the Opening and Closing ceremonies.A memorable experience indeed.
