I'm a second year English student at the University of Southampton. I love reading books, visiting the theatre and watching television and films. I spend way to much time watching Netflix and scanning facebook, thankfully I still manage to get all of my work finished on time. I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and if quizzed will likely know most of the answers (sad as that is). I'm also a big Jane Austen fan, though I don't have a favorite book because I simply can't decide.
I love travelling and hope to one day visit every continent on Earth. I take every chance I can to travel, even if it's just for a weekend and I am going to study abroad in my third year at university.
I also write for The Edge Magazine and the Wessex Scene.
