Age: 20

Course: Bachelor of Fine Arts (Creative and Professional Writing).

Year of progress in course: Third year

Dream job: I would really like to work in the publishing industry. More than anything else in the world though, I’d absolutely love to write my own novels and have them published one day.

What’s the one thing that sets you apart from other students? That’s really difficult, because I think that everyone is set apart from other students in one way or another. So I’ll just say that I could probably answer more questions about zebras than I can about my actual course.

Which TV character best matches your personality: I like to think that Samwell Tarly from Game of Thrones best matches my personality. I’m scared of a lot of things, but if it was a life or death situation I could probably manage to kill a spider. And I do really love reading.

Your favourite three books: I think it’s really difficult to narrow it down to just three books. Every book I’ve read has offered me something new and exciting, so I will probably be here for days just trying to figure out what my three favourite books are. Instead, I’ll just say three books that I like. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley and A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin.

Your favourite three movies: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Third Star and Iron Man.

Describe your music tastes: A lot of the music I listen to is a little bit older than I am. The Beatles, Bee Gees, Elton John, Eric Clapton and Queen just to name a few. But every now and then a modern band will pop up. I absolutely adore Bastille and A Great Big World, but for the most part I think my music taste just depends on what mood I’m in.

What do you do in your free time: I sleep, I eat, I read, I watch television and more importantly, I look up pictures of ginger kittens.

You can invite five people (dead, alive or fictional) to dinner – who would they be: Dumbledore, Freddie Mercury, Robert Downey Jr, Mufasa and Tyrion Lannister.

What makes you happy: Zebras, friends, coffee, family, cats, tea, books, music, writing and Doctor Who.

If you could choose one super power – what would it be: Flight.

What is your favourite place on earth: My favourite place on earth is my bed, closely followed by anywhere that makes good milkshakes.

What would be your last meal: Fried rice. Just fried rice. I can’t think of a more glorious last meal than that.

What do you want to be when you grow up: I really just want to be a cat.

If your mates could sum you up in three words – they would be: Passionate, quirky, creative.

What is your most treasured possession: My zebra onesie. Enough said.
