My name is Lila and I am quite a vibrant and curious person by nature. By profession I am a psychologist and a journalist. I completed my MSc in Rehabilitation Psychology from the University of Nottingham in 2010 and have previously majored in Social Sciences. I have a keen interest in how the human mind interacts and communicates and this is gelled with my love for writing. Owing to my background in the Social Sciences and my experience in journalism I have had the chance to write and research about several different topics varying from psychology, sociology, politics, anthropology and even literature. I have also written academic papers on certain themes within women’s rights, gender issues and cultural identities. Within psychology, I have a good grasp on areas within counselling, clinical and health psychology. On weekends I volunteer as a counsellor to secondary school students from lower income backgrounds. I have previously worked with children with learning disabilities. Other than that my time is spent reading and honing another one of my keen interests, which is photography.
