Librarianship student Jessica is from Nottingham in the UK and is a member of the University's Book Society and Sign Language Society. Her hobbies include reading, walking and cooking.

Hi, I am Jess! I am an MA Librarianship student here at Sheffield. I also did my undergraduate degree at this university and have lived in Sheffield for 5 years, before moving back to Nottingham for the duration of this MA. I commute to do this course and haven't found it to be an issue with my studies. My plans for after this MA are to do some years as a practitioner, before coming back and doing a PhD. The Information School has such an incredible range of topics and support that I don't really want to leave it!

I also have some great involvement with the university outside of my studies. I am an Academic Rep for my course, part of Book Society, and on the committee for Sign Language Society. They are all amazing roles to be in and have really contributed positively to my student experience here in Sheffield. Outside of my degree, I love going walking in the Peak District with my partner and friends, as well as socialising with old and new course mates, and reading of course!

My pronouns are she/they.
