Born and raised in the UK, Victoria is of Kalabari ancestry & west African (Nigerian) descent. Educated at Oxford and UCL, she holds an MA Oxon in Literature, a Masters in Philosophy and is working towards another graduate degree in Neuroscience at King’s College London.
A lifelong learner, her stints at Accenture, the Financial Times, the WPP & Demos, taught her about a breadth of industries from finance to fashion to think tanks -- and about what she did not enjoy.
Writing for the Guardian, the LRB, n+1, BBC, and more, crystallised what she did. Which began with writing to interrogate the human condition, so we might grow to recognise the depth of others, and in doing so understand ourselves.
In her spare time she tutors low-income & chronically ill secondary school students.
