We are thrilled to announce that we have a brand new member of the Just Croydon family - Shaniqua! She will be joining our team to write about all things Croydon. But who is Shaniqua?...
Hello to everyone checking out this piece on the Just Croydon Site. My name is Shaniqua, and I am a 22-year-old female who was born and bred in the borough of Croydon – Thornton Heath to be exactly. I love where I come from and as I continue to see the emergence of community engagement, I am even prouder to call Croydon my home.
Writing is what I do. It is my passion, my first love and a gift I have been blessed with. I want to use writing to tell stories, make a difference and highlight all of the amazing things being done in Croydon. However, what I am most passionate about is young people. I want them to have a voice and understand that there are people who not only care about them, but also see the great potential that they have. Ultimately, I want everyone to see young people the way that I see them.
As you know, I love the idea of Just Croydon and I can’t wait to create pieces about my borough and the young people within my borough for the site. So to all the young people who have any events happening or want to get their point across, I’d love to hear from you.
