Genine Whitehorne


Why London?

Genine was born and raised in the heart of East London. The area where she grew up was, and still is, one of the most diverse boroughs in the Capital and an area often perceived as ‘deprived’. However, growing up there, Genine experienced firsthand the creativity, strength, resilience and capacity of communities to solve some of the most challenging issues for themselves. She believes passionately in the strength and agency of people whilst recognising that it’s vital that communities receive the right support and investment at the grassroots.
