I took Joe.co.uk to Balham Boxing Club to speak about the values which drive me forward and the experiences which made me the person I am today.
Growing up in a single parent household wasn't easy, with my mum working three jobs just to put food on the table. She always instilled that sense of possibility in us - something my brother and I carry with us today.
Labour reformed the system of bursaries and grants - meaning people from poorer backgrounds, like me, were able to study medicine. I believe opportunity should be based on where you’re going, not where you’re from.
