About me
I love thinking and writing about popular culture, politics, film & TV, contemporary fiction, food, feminism, relationships and travel. In 2015 I achieved a BA in English Literature and in 2019 I achieved an MA in Creative Writing, with a focus on screenwriting. During my masters degree I wrote a feature length coming-of-age screenplay entitled 'Sunflowers'. I am currently working on my second screenplay. Travelling is a passion of mine, and I have recently backpacked around Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia. I lived in Italy for a year as a student and travelled extensively around the country, eating as much pasta as possible.
