Youth Work

I have worked with young people in a variety of settings (youth centres, support projects) since graduating and continue to do so - working with young people leaving local authority care. Seeing young people grow and progress has been very rewarding.

Biography

I have worked with young people in a variety of settings (including youth centres and support projects) since graduating and continues to work with young people leaving local authority care. Seeing young people grow and progress has been very rewarding. The focus of my Master's research was young people, sociolinguistics and sarcasm, which was the source of much rich material.
