About the Speaker
"My father is from a Greek Cypriot family, my mother is English, they were both raised in East London (Stepney Green, Bethnal Green respectively). I went to a normal state school in Chingford, Waltham Forest, where we were raised. It’s a suburb that comes under London but is on the border of Essex. I’d say I’m white British."

About East London
East London in this instance refers to the larger area of North East boroughs as distinct from the smaller sub-district of the East End of the City. It comprises the boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Hackney, Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest. Its northern most boroughs were historically part of Essex.
As the working population of the East End prospered there was (and continues to be) a traditional exodus North to these boroughs and beyond into Essex. The area has a substantial Jewish, Greek and South Asian population, with synagogues, Jewish community centres and schools across the area. The further north you travel, the more affluent and residential the boroughs become. Waltham Forest is on the borders of Essex in the North of the region and is perhaps best known as the birthplace and home of David Beckham.
