Lortoria

About Me: 

I was born and raised in the United Kingdom, London and my heritage is mixed West Indian. I recently became a freelance writer, and when I saw the World Pulse project 'VOF 2013,' I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to hone my skills as a journalist.

I have experience working for the charitable industry--Action for the Blind and Eaves. I was a fundraising officer for the latter, helping women disadvantaged by domestic violence and trafficking to achieve their autonomy and rebuild their lives. My work consisted of researching and writing proposals, campaigning, legislation, networking, and events management.

Throughout my career, I have always tried to inspire and empower unrepresented youth in my community by mentoring and partnering with outreach programmes. I do this by helping children to find their own 'voice' through creative writing and filmmaking.

Despite living in a westernised culture, I continually experience many hardships and adversities that threaten to stunt my spiritual, mental and professional growth. Like most unrepresented women, my life journey so far has been a struggle to reach my current achievements, but there is still so much to do. Instead of allowing these pressures, prejudices and setbacks stop me from reaching my destiny, I learn from and share my experiences with those in similar situations.

On the other hand, I know I am very blessed to have been born and raised in the UK, and would like to use the opportunities and resources that are available to me to support others.

My Passions: 
Writing, reading, networking, research, travelling, astronomy, science and art.
My Challenges: 
Learning and applying new skills with foresight, justly representing the 'voice' of those in my community
My Areas of Expertise: 
Writing, fundraising and socio-political activism, mentoring, and marketing
