mixedracefaces is an organisation that captures portraits and stories of mixed-race people. Before Parliament was dissolved for the general election, I took my photo alongside other mixed-race MPs and staff members, to raise awareness of diversity in our workplace.
“My constituency has a large population of mixed-race people, and that includes the Mayor Marvin Rees. Marvin and I show the younger generation in Bristol that you can be mixed-race and succeed in politics. My perception of being mixed-race has changed because the world has shifted; I have also been a part of that shift. I was the first mixed-race MP in Bristol. It’s an incredible privilege. With that comes more awareness and self-reflection of being British.”
