What is your favourite memory from your time at King’s?
There really are too many to count – from great trips, to plays produced by my peers, inspiring lessons and charity events. It’s impossible to pick just one!

Did you have a favourite teacher?
Mr Loach and Dr McMahon!

What advice would you offer current students who may be interested in a similar path to yours?
Don’t be put off if the degree you want to study doesn’t necessarily lead to a job – as long as you’re passionate about it, it’ll make you want to work hard and enjoy studying it which will come across far more strongly when it comes to applying to jobs than a degree you wouldn’t enjoy or have wanted to work hard at.

What would be the best piece of advice you’d give to your younger self?
Have confidence in yourself and your abilities, and don’t be afraid to believe in your own brilliance.

What is your ultimate ambition?
To publish a book!
