As well as writing for magazines and academic journals like Macau Lifestyle, Corridor 8 and Engage among many others, Jessica is also a visual artist. She has been commissioned by organisations including Manchester International Festival, Signal Film and Media and Journeys Festival International. Her work is always socially focused and as such has worked on many aspects of arts engagement including with schools, non-native speakers and many charities.

At her best when running between meetings — attempting not to spill her Americano as she goes — she likes to keep busy and juggle many different projects. Her newest adventure, an MA in Post-Colonial Culture and Global Policy at Goldsmiths University London, is going to be challenging but will provide an ample backdrop for writing about international topics.
