About me


I have recently graduated from Merton College, University of Oxford with a BA Honours in English Language and Literature (2:1). During my three years at Oxford, I have worked for Cherwell, Oxford's independent student newspaper, initially as a satirical columnist and was subsequently appointed Deputy Life Editor, then Life Editor, Deputy Editor, and most recently Culture Editor. Whilst Life Editor I led the #NotGuilty campaign, which gained mass national news coverage. Consequently I spent a fortnight with The Sunday Times, interning on their News Desk and with their Culture Magazine. I am now actively pursuing a career in journalism, copywriting and media.
