“I currently live in Covent Garden, but I grew up all over Camden, including Swiss Cottage, King’s Cross and Kilburn.
“I studied Professional Musical Theatre at Wac Arts and now I’m a singer-songwriter. I perform at open mics around Camden Town as well as working with lots of community organisations, including Fitzrovia Youth in Action.
“I’ve met people who knew Amy Winehouse, and Dua Lipa was a couple of years above me at Parliament Hill School. Knowing that they came from Camden inspires me.
“Living in Camden, and being so connected to the rest of central London, offers a lot of opportunities because there’s so much going on. You just need to be brave enough to step out of your comfort zone and things happen. I’ve made loads of connections from going to gigs, from getting invited to Italy to now working at a youth organisation, SoapBox, just over the border in Islington.
“I hope Camden doesn’t change too much from big businesses buying out the small, and it being an expensive place to live. We need to hold onto our history and authenticity.”
