Jordan says… 

I am a graphic artist, born and raised in Newham. I have interests in a variety of different mediums and have explored: life drawing, ceramics, music, woodworking and screen printing.  

I am a BA Graphic Arts graduate who acted as brand creative director for Bucks New University’s end of year show in my final year. I have thorough experiences working with charities and young people, I’ve developed a deeper love for the community, looking for new ways of enriching local areas using creativity.  

I have worked with Help Refugees, Hackney and Islington Citizen’s and St. Ethelburga’s, I am very excited to share my experiences in my new role at UCL.  

I am really looking forward to the STEP programme as it gives me a great opportunity to combine my love of community and creativity, to meet other young talented Londoners and learn new skills at a comfortable place.
