I am an ambitious, positive and proactive individual constantly on the move, seeking out my next challenge.
Tell us about your time at QMUL. What have been your highlights?
Becoming Editor in Chief of CUB Magazine, meeting new people that I would never have encountered had it not been for university and broadening my mind by studying modules that have changed my outlook on life completely such as all of the postcolonial based modules. Also completing my dissertation and seeing how my initial idea blossomed and having it published as an official document to be circulated in academic circles.
How has your course at Queen Mary helped you to progress into the world outside? What’s next?
It has given me a first class degree which will make me stand out to employers. I am actively looking to pursue a job in journalism or editorial industries.
Aside from course content what have been your favourite elements of the experience of studying here as a whole? (societies/friends/community/values)
The diverse and inclusive community at QM which welcomes everyone and also caters/puts on events for everyone. Also being affiliated with and working closely with QMSU as Editor in Chief of CUB.

I had an internship writing for the UK branch of an American magazine called SOCIETY19 last summer writing mainly for the sex and relationships section.

What could be improved to enhance future students’ experience at Queen Mary?
To really advertise the social side of the university and also the support side, especially for mental health.
