About Me

See, I never know if I should write in third-person on this page. It’s awkward because it’s my site and you all definitely know I’m writing this but at the same time, to give off that profesh vibe, I should probably write about myself like some sort of goddess.

I’m not going to do it.

Hello!

I’m Chanté a recent Social Policy with Quantitative Research Methods graduate from the ‘rah-rah gap-yah’ University of Bristol. No tea, no shade, I too took a gap year – didn’t travel though, just worked at the Bank of England (Snoozefest).

Whilst at University I really threw myself into it, really, I did pretty much everything. From being president of my Labour Society to Pole classes every Wednesday, I truly believe, minus the drugs, I had a pretty all-encompassing university experience.

I also worked, a lot, I did two term-time internships at a Tea Company doing marketing and shadowing the political editor at BBC Bristol. In the summer I was lucky enough to intern with the Marketing team at Google and gained the much coveted Google stone from eating so damn much.

Since graduation, I’ve had the privilege of working for companies such as eBay, Hearst (ELLE), VICE and come February will be creating digital content for the heart of our democracy.

I’m dead serious about Political education and the enfranchisement of black women on every level. Honestly,
