In a recent Twitter post, she opened up about being a BAME individual and the “constant battle” she faces as a mixed race woman.
“As a mixed race woman, it’s a constant battle to get people to hear and understand your lived experiences as a woman and as a BAME individual. Do you know how degrading it is when the battle happens within the walls of your own home?” Sharon tweeted. “I am not who I am because I’m there to tick diversity boxes. I am a person, with feelings, with knowledge and with experience. If the pill is hard to swallow it’s because the truth hurts.”
During her time at the villa, her Twitter profile will be monitored and run by her friends.
