Karen is of dual heritage being both Jamaican and English but she has struggled to find acceptance with this identity within herself and by other people. She talks about her difficulties growing up with the responsibility of being a carer and having that take precedence over her personal battle to find her own sense of place. It was not until in her late 40s that her journey into self acceptance began leading her to working on the subject of identity within the local community.
