My day job is working as an editor and proofreader within the English Langauge Teaching sector. I have been self-employed for nine years and love the fact that setting my own schedule gives me time to do voluntary work.

There are plenty of things I campaign on, including bringing in electoral reform, legalising assisted dying, supporting peace-keeping organisations and advocating individual tailored support for autistic people. Whenever I go to political hustings or conference events, I live-tweet so that those who don't have time to be there can still follow along. It's a privilege to have this platform.

However, my various roles are all 100% voluntary and I have to balance them with my work commitments. If you like what I do on Twitter, chipping in would be appreciated - that way I can get to more events!
