My Story: Imo G
On Tuesday we released an emotive and thought-provoking piece written by Imo G about her life experiences. She was born in Stoke on Trent but was adopted when 10 days old in Hull. Read about her positive relationship with her adoptive parents, what it was like growing up in this region and how sport and being subjected to racism have shaped her approach to and outlook on life.
