"I went on a study abroad placement to Madison, Wisconsin in the United States. I’m hugely involved in the Student Radio, and Theatre Group. Both of these societies led me to do things I never thought were even possible for a student: a highlight being writing and directing a sell-out show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival."
