I graduated from the University of Bristol last year, after completing my BCs in Psychology. Since then, I have worked with vulnerable children in school-settings as a learning support worker and behavioural mentor. I have also assisted in a research project investigating self-harm in young people, and how health-care staff, school staff and other young people can best respond to self-harm. I’m also interested in the topic of drug use and addiction, and have been involved with volunteering in this area. Aside from all of this, I enjoy sports, particularly rock climbing, and art.
