I came to UEA in 2017 from the University of Oxford. I am originally from a small village just outside the Cathedral City of Lichfield in Staffordshire, and I had a somewhat unusual educational journey towards university. I became ill with M.E. in my early teens, which meant that I had to leave my state secondary school and be tutored at home for my GSCEs. I then returned to school for sixth form – this time to a small all-girls’ boarding and day school – meaning that I ended up experiencing a range of learning environments, all of which in varied ways helped to prepare me for different aspects of university life both as a student and as a tutor.
