I’ve recently joined the team here in Schools Liaison following my postgraduate study at The University of Sheffield, where I specialised in Human and Molecular Genetics. Working as a Widening Participation student ambassador, I saw first-hand how important it is to engage students with higher education throughout their time at school. I am passionate about raising aspirations, and showing students that university is open to everyone regardless of their background. As a UK Recruitment Assistant, I support the development and delivery of our programme of workshops for schools and colleges, as well as attending higher education fairs across the UK.

Having grown up in Sheffield and also studied my undergraduate degree here, I love sharing how our student friendly city can offer something for everyone. In my free time, you can catch me exploring the ever growing independent shops and restaurants, or getting stuck into a good book.
