Having borrowed from friends, banks and Student Loans Company to finish higher education, I ended up in unimaginable debts. To survive I worked for a payday loans company that went bust. Since then I worked as a debt adviser at Toynbee Hall to help struggling communities in East London. At Debt Free London I supported advisers to deliver quality debt advice to indebted Londoners. Throughout the period I continued to pay back debts to many of my creditors.
