What is the skill that you would most like to have?
I feel like researchers can sometimes go in to something with a perception or a conclusion already in mind, but I would like people to be able to tell me their stories. I would like to do away with assumptions and be able to allow people a voice through my research.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
Do work that you enjoy and are interested in and do not be afraid to bring your own experiences or background into your work. For me, being a British Zambian allows me to bring a unique element into my work as I am from the African diaspora. So being authentic in the work you do.
pen, encouraging and authentic.
