Miranda is grew up in Oxford and returned after getting a degree in Conflict Resolution at the University of Bradford. She has been back in Oxford since 2010 where she currently teaches the violin, runs a community cafe and campaigns locally on food and housing issues. She is a founding member of the Oxford Food Surplus cafe. She was involved in the Iffley Open House project in 2017 which housed 20-30 homeless people at the beginning of the year in occupied empty buildings.
If she were to be elected, she would listen to what people in the community want and act on behalf of those ideas in local council. She cares passionately about supporting people to fight for a better future and to protect people before profit. She would fight for our services - especially in fighting the cuts to essential services that are affecting women, children, disabled, elderly and vulnerable people of all ages. She would also look at ways to improve air quality in Oxford more broadly. She believes very strongly in building stronger communities and in reducing crime through listening to the needs of people rather than just punishing people where there are complex issues."
