Studying how people interact with their environment has always fascinated me
What was your favourite subject at school and why?
At school I loved drama the most because it combined not only performance work but also set design.
Why did you decide to study Landscape Architecture at Sheffield?
I chose to study Landscape Architecture because I really loved human geography and set design and was looking to find a way to combine the two.
I chose the BA route because urban planning and studying people and how they interact with their environment has always fascinated me

If you had to pick one stand out memory from your time in Sheffield, what would it be?
