Community has always been a huge part of my life. I grew up in Hackney and was part of a really tight-knit, multicultural community with no frills. I'm from a working-class background; my dad was originally a bus conductor and my mother was a nursery assistant, so they were both pretty important to our neighbourhood. It was a place where everyone knew everyone. Hackney wasn't as gentrified as it is now. Houses were filled with families and there weren't many young professionals within the community. In a way, being working-class made us even closer, everyone looked out for each other.
