Tiger Lilly works tirelessly for mental health awareness:

"When I was 11 yrs old I was told I was "too dark to be Wendy" when we played 'Peter Pan' in the playground. I was only allowed to be ‘Tiger Lilly' because I resembled the character with my long dark hair my mum would plait either side of my olive skin. I would go home and write in my diary whilst crying and listening to music, the emotions were so strong I progressed to poems and then to lyrics, always signing off with 'By Tiger Lilly’."

"I had such a hard time at school and felt very alone and depressed, often I would self harm as I did not know how to cope but I found music and that became my outlet. It made me connect with my feelings and singing gave me an escape to a place where I felt happy. 

I never thought that years later I would become an artist with a message so profound I would want the whole world to know how it feels to have this knowledge.

My goal is to reach 1000's children and adults across the UK and inspire them with my story.

I will travel the country with my 'Music & Mental Health Awareness’ workshop and talking about subjects close to my heart; bullying, depression, anxiety and living with Borderline Personality Disorder".
