Year of progress in course: Fourth
Dream job: Hybrid feature writer, opinion journalist and public relations genius.
What’s the one thing that sets you apart from other students? I’m just a sheep, really.
Which TV character best matches your personality: It’s a cross between Girls’ Hannah Horvath who thinks she’s the voice of her generation (or a generation?) AND my personal idol, Arthur Read from the cartoon Arthur, because I am also the protagonist of my own TV show/life and I too am an eternal source of wisdom and valuable life lessons.
Your favourite three books: Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (not for its actual plot line, but for the way it revolutionised writing- double entendres, anagrams and beautiful word play), East of Eden by John Steinbeck and I’m Sorry I’m Not Dead by Marieke Hardy.
Your favourite three movies: Submarine, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Arthur: The Movie when they hurry up and make it.
Describe your music tastes: Er, good? Bit of an old soul here- take me back to The Pixies, Bob Dylan and Talking Heads.
What do you do in your free time: Spend way too much time on the Internet, read, and of course, spend time with awesome people (I’m not a total recluse, I swear).
You can invite five people (dead, alive or fictional) to dinner – who would they be: Arthur Read (yes, the cartoon), Lena Dunham, Tavi Gevinson because I think we were quite possibly the same person in a previous life, feminist and existentialist Simone De Beauvoir for some riveting conversation, and Beyonce because duh.
What makes you happy: The Internet.
If you could choose one super power – what would it be: Time management.
What is your favourite place on earth: The Internet (also London).
What would be your last meal: Yoghurt- mmm fermented bacterial milk product, you so tasty.
What do you want to be when you grow up: A fully-realised person doing something I love.
If your mates could sum you up in three words – they would be: Stop talking, Maddie.
What is your most treasured possession: As much as I’d love to sound romantic and thoughtful and say a sentimental pendant passed down through five generations, it would have to be my laptop. I could not live without that blessed device (it’s a side-effect of my generation, don’t judge).
