Phillips went on to add that she is proud of her achievement as she deliberately made an effort to make room for herself in a field heavily dominated by white males.

She said it was not an easy feat, but it was achievable with the support of family and friends.

“I’m a proud Black British woman from LDN. I made space for myself in a predominantly white, male field. It was hard, but with the support of my family & my community, I did it.” Philips tweeted.
