Olivia Watson 

2nd year Adult Nursing | Undergraduate  | NI

Hi there! My name is Olivia (or Liv) and I am a second year undergrad adult nursing student at Queen's. I am from NI so Belfast isn’t exactly new to me but the experiences and opportunities I've had since starting uni here have been totally different to anything I’ve done before. I have loved getting involved in student life here, including being a member of QUB Christian Union and playing for QUB hockey club. A nursing degree doesn’t allow for a lot of free time but, when I can get some, I love walking my dog, baking and open water swimming. I started making videos on YouTube as a hobby during the first lockdown in 2020 and I hope that the content I create here can be of benefit to you!
