We love East London
East London is a vibrant place for food, art and culture, music, community life and more. She loves the myriad of eclectic venues such as Hackney Museum, Rich Mix and nighttime venues, as well as the many diverse arts, culture and heritage organisations in the area. For her, places are always about the people, first and foremost.
