About me

What was your experience of further or higher education like?  

I studied Journalism and really enjoyed all the practical elements of the degree. I made some great friends at university. However, I found overcoming certain challenges difficult at university. I was the first in my family to go to university and found the experience overwhelming at times. I wish I had known about support services available to me, it would’ve made a big difference.  

Who or what made the biggest positive impact on you when you were studying? And how did they support you?  

My course tutor really supported me during the more challenging periods of my studies. I was able to get additional support to help me successfully complete my studies.  

What working achievements or initiatives are you most proud of?  

My dissertation explored the role of the matrimonial sites in faith-based marriages. I used online forums to look for participants for my research. I was contacted by ITV to help them with their documentary covering the same topic. I spent the summer working as a researcher for the Arts department and witnessing my research come to life as a documentary!  

If you could tell your younger self one thing, what would it be?  

Don’t be afraid of failing! Things always work out!  Don’t compare yourself to others!  

What would it surprise people to know about you?

I used to interview A-list Bollywood actors for a music magazine! My claim to fame is having a coffee with Amitabh Bachman.
