LLB Law | 1st Year | Isle of Man

I was born in Cardiff, Wales and lived there until I was 4 years old. We then (mum & dad) moved to the Isle of Man! I now have two younger brothers, who are 8 & 12. Hobby wise, I enjoy cycling, tennis and netball - I enjoy walking too but that's usually done with an Instagram photo opportunity in mind!

A trip to the Naughton Gallery

19/12/2016 - On the 8th of December, I visited the Naughton Gallery at Queens for the first time. It was a refreshing new experience as I had never actually visited a gallery before although it was on my ‘to do’ list.

The Difference Between School and University

13/12/2016 - Throughout sixth form, I always used to hear the same comments by teachers – ‘this is sixth form now, the spoon feeding is over’ which more or less translated to stop being lazy and do the work yourself this time round.

My last minute journey to Belfast after clearing and adjustment

28/11/2016 - Coming through adjustment, especially being the only student in my school to do so that year, was a pleasantly surprising but simple process which led me to where I initially wanted to be in the first place – Queen's.

Belfast to the Isle of Man: Heading home for Bonfire Night!

14/11/2016 - So here I am, about to set off home to the Isle of Man for the weekend. Can’t say I’m not ecstatic to get a cup of tea which I haven’t had to make, or food for that matter.
