About me

My name is Anna, I’m 19 years old and am currently in my first year studying English Literature. Once I had confirmed my Uni choices last year, I spent a lot of time wondering what my life was going to be like in the following years.

My home is one of the University’s Courts of Residence, where I share a kitchen - and frequent nights out - with 11 fellow undergraduates who have very quickly become some of my best friends. I spend my time watching “Made in Chelsea” on 4oD, enjoying the shopping and nightlife of Guildford, sometimes venturing to the Sports Park to play tennis, and - when I’m not distracted - writing essays and reading for my course.
