So every story has a beginning and this is where I started 

I was born and bred in Hackney. Back when I was a kid Lower Clapton was a very rough neighbourhood. Hackney wasn’t the “up-and-coming” district that it is now. In fact, the area that this tale begins was infamously nicknamed “murder mile”. So, there I was, in my mother’s house using the scissors as a tool for cutting hair – perhaps a controversial choice of weapon and use for this area. The streets were dangerous, and I was on a mission to escape it. Trust me when I say this – it was life or death. I had dreams big dreams I never allowed my environment dictate my future.
