Mixed Feelings is a funny, raw and uncensored look at the world of social media. Why did you and Sarah decide to write the book?
I was approached in 2017 about writing a book and when I was trying to figure out what I wanted to explore and this subject matter kept coming up. We kept overhearing conversations – or eavesdropping – about how much social media affects our lives, and how it has changed them more than anything in the last 10 years. We wanted to discuss both sides of social media - positive and negative - and the huge impact it has on daily life. We wanted to lift the lid on that without seeming like we have all the answers, so we wrote the book from personal experiences to make it as honest as possible.
There are essays in the book from Phoebe Lovatt, Stephanie Yeboah, Ruby Tandoh and more. How did you decide who you wanted to feature?
The whole book is basically an insight in to my brain so I wanted to talk to people who I respect and look up to. We wanted an honest collection of different voices because social media isn’t just one voice and we wanted to reflect that. Social is such a big subject matter so this is only a drop in the ocean, but the aim is to reflect a myriad of different opinions that would make you question everything.
