BA English and History | Northern Ireland

I am a 20 year old English and History student at Queen’s. I have lived in Northern Ireland my whole life but hope to someday travel the world and share it through my videos and writing. I want to share my experience at QUB and hopefully help new students who are worried about what university life may hold!
