“Growing up, in a mostly Caucasian area, I had not realised until I was much older that the image of a black boy or man is often one of anger or aggression. In many ways I can understand this given the often aggressive media portrayals of frankly large black males in music, TV, video games and films.

“However, what I do not appreciate is the way that this portrayal has come to define the presumption of my character and who I am from individuals who do not know me or who see me in a club and assume that I have an aggressive character. Through my career choices I hope to show them wrong. #John15:7”
