(Drama BA, 2018)

Being an actor is the most thrilling job imaginable. The fact that I get to travel around the world whilst always doing new projects is luxurious. It is a very tough and competitive environment but the moment you get into that rehearsal room or on stage, it all becomes worth it.

(History BA, 2016)

The town I grew up in and the school I went to really lacked diversity, so coming to Queen Mary and experiencing real multiculturalism and inclusivity was such a positive experience for me. Exposure to different ethnicities and religions helped me build my awareness and become a better person.

Being Queer, I get to contribute to the active shifting of perceptions toward the Queer community. I represent a community consisting of hundreds of millions of the most vibrant and eccentric people. We get to challenge the norm and define what is acceptable. We’re not only survivors but also thrivers.

I love how diverse the topic of psychology is, from learning about child development to the evolution of our ancestors to the way the mind works. Every lecture was fascinating and there was always an abundance of knowledge to learn.
