Charmaine studied Health and Social Care at Filton College in Bristol. Then went on to follow her passion by studying Performing Arts at Lewisham College in London.


After 8 years of living in London, Charmaine moved back to Bristol in 2010. She worked in the inner city area with the young and elderly alike, aiming to make a positive impact on her local community. Spearheading awareness campaigns such as the ‘Make It Worth It’ project and the ‘We Aint Giving Up’ youth media campaign which was done in partnership with KC Visualz (formerly known as Anonymous Media UK) Charmaine built up a good reputation amongst her peers as being a young Bristolian to watch.
