SG: I spent over 6 years working with a community radio station (Radio Plus) where I also held a position of Trustee. I’m incredibly proud that as a Board, we achieved a Queen’s Award for our volunteers’ programme. This gave me the grounding in radio that I needed and got me out and about meeting & talking to people. With both UCB and BBC I got a call from the Editor and Head of Radio inviting me to audition for a role. I had no idea they were watching me.
SG: I waited a long till I went full time in music because I’m a Mum and my children have and will always come first. But this hasn’t meant I haven’t packed my kids up and taken them with me to gigs, concerts etc. There have also been times when I have felt guilty but my kids and husband have been such a support and are my greatest cheerleaders. However, I don’t sing much at home, that’s where they want me to be mum and homemaker.
Today I mix in so many cultures and circles, learning how to bring something relevant to the table takes great skill, understanding, patience and flexibility. I’m not afraid to cross borders and mix, people are people. My goal in life is to inspire as many people as I can and I can see the impact of that through what people say. I receive many requests from artists for guidance, business advice, national and international speaking engagements, partnerships etc. No two days are the same.
SG: I’d like to think my achievements are down to my merits and skill as a Broadcaster. That said I’ve worked very hard to get to where I am. I want to be a role model especially for girls of any colour or background, to encourage them to achieve the very best.
