About me

Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Maggie.

I have studied economics and politics at undergraduate and postgraduate level and I have now completed my GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law, occasionally referred to as a law conversion course).

I have worked with several Higher Eductation institutions providing support to students on a variety of topics that affect their lives, with a strong emphasis on immigration. I am interested in ensuring that all my clients recieve a fair and transparent service and that decisions are taken with their best interests at heart, whilst also being compliant with the current legislation.

I have a keen interest in civil liberties and human rights, in particular freedom of conscience, expression, and religion. I am also interested in how these freedoms are enabled or restricted by media and social media and what that means for society and what challenges they present to legislators.

I hope that my experience with politics and policy, advocacy, and media, serves to testify for my love of research and communications. I thrive on a challenge and enjoy dedicating myself to projects at work and privately. As you will certainly notice I enjoy keeping myself busy.
