Education

Currently

BA (Hons) English Literature and History

University of Southampton

Sep 2014
  • Southampton, United Kingdom
  • I gained a BA (Hons) in English Literature with History over three years at Southampton, a university with exceptional teaching staff and research facilities. During my time there, I was taught by published authors, poets, playwrights, screenwriters and historians who sparked the curiosity that still drive me today. Modules I studied included: - Women, Writing and Modernity, 1770-1830 - Modern Drama Since the Second World War - Inventing America: Writing and Visual Representation in the early years of the United States - Underworlds: A cultural history of urban nightlife in the 19th and 20th centuries - Crime and Punishment in England, 1688-1840 - The Transatlantic Slave Trade and Abolition in West Africa Outside my studies, I was society sports secretary. I regularly published content on the society's social media pages, reporting on results and encouraging student engagement. I also managed social events alongside the social secretary. These included alumni talks and writer visits.

Awards

2016

Queen's Guide Award

Girlguiding

  • The Queen’s Guide award is the highest award attainable in guiding. It's a comprehensive and creative project which spans three years, involving service in the organisation, personal skill development and community action. For the community action element, I focused on access to local history for children. I researched and wrote a history trail, creating content and clues about compelling historical sites and the stories they had to tell. This project received great feedback from my colleagues and the county commissioner, and went on to be published for distribution at local businesses and attractions.
