Why Medicine?

I have wanted to be a doctor for as long as I can remember. To have a job where people trust you with their lives is a privilege and I am honoured to be able to have the opportunity to have that and love it so much.

Why Cambridge?

I chose Cambridge because it is a pretty city. The course separates the academic from the clinical and because Cambridge gives you the opportunity to learn from the best lecturers and doctors!

Beyond the boat..

I love to bake (and then eat) and also like drawing.


I have been rowing for 2 years for my college, last year I was captain of my boat and this year I have decided to trial for CUWBC! I already love training with these group of girls as they are so colourful and hilarious that even a tough day doesn’t seem so bad when you are with them!
