Meet the team

KissKiss London started life as a small idea by a hospital bedside but has now grown into a still small, but proactive and vibrant project, and attracted the participation of some great team members, we invite you to meet some of us here.

Project Leaders

Odeta works part-time as a project worker for the charity organisation Open Door, which supports people with mental health problems. Her background is in counselling and advocacy. She has been involved with different projects across London working directly with vulnerable children and adults, including those with mental health issues, learning disabilities, refugee matters, asylum seekers and domestic violence. Odeta deals with service user issues too, such as helping them plan financially, form filling and also through her counselling skills supporting users emotionally and empowering them to become independent. She runs a variety of groups encouraging service users to lead a healthy lifestyle through Munch Brunch (cooking), Relaxation, Women groups and Aerobics sessions. Her social and organisational skills as well as her ability to relate to all kind of backgrounds has given Kiss Kiss London a dedicated project coordinator, channelling the project's message.

Helen and Rupert initiated the KissKiss London campaign to help inform inner-city kids of the importance of keeping ourselves in shape through a healthy diet and sports, encouraging them to feel happier as a result.

Patrick Cox After completing his joint Honour's BA at York university in Canada, Patrick worked extensively in international Production Coordination and then as Youth Director in several international youth venues. Patrick returned to the United Kingdom in 2008 as a Consultant & Youth Advisor for UK based organisations; his current work includes youth advisory in several London Boroughs. He joined the KissKissLondon Project in 2011 on a part-time basis and he provides the project invaluable assistance in coordinating with Youth Clubs, community centres and interaction with the housing estate youth.

Advisory Board

Lydie Luc is a consultant teacher of visual communications at the Institute of art (St. Luc) in Belgium, and strongly believes that a dynamic and energetic mix of visual arts such as graphic, mime and street-dance is a great way to encourage kids to explore their undiscovered potential and develop their own awareness.

Ayodele Modupe is a senior Lawyer at Rock Solicitors, with many years of local London experience particularly in matters of immigration, family law and Children Act cases. Ayo's work brings him into regular contact with special cases involving Police assaults, accidents in public places, accidents involving children, clinical negligence, head injuries, and criminal injury claims. His experience and counsel for the KissKissLondon project provides invaluable assistance and support to the team.

Laura Nechifor moved to the UK from France two years ago; she studied Architecture at University but when she started her first fashion shoot she realised she should focus more on studying Nutrition and Fitness and today she quotes a healthy diet and regular exercise as being key to keeping a “sane mind” when running around the world in such a competitive professional environment. Laura has joined our team as an adviser in Nutrition, and to help mentor kids having difficulty in keeping to a healthy diet.

Research

Tashi is an Architecture student at London Metropolitan University, and identifies closely with the project's aims having seen during her own upbringing many young children waste away their potential to develop healthy minds and bodies due to a lack of awareness and encouragement from teachers and parents. Tashi joined the team in 2009 as our research assistant.
