I'm from East Sussex and I am just about to graduate from Jesus with a degree in Human, Social, and Political Sciences. I specialised in Social Anthropology, with a particular interest in digital anthropology and the intersection of the social sciences and new technologies. This year I am hoping to start work while considering my postgraduate options.
Going to Jesus has been the greatest privilege of my life; it's full of incredible, passionate, and intellectually engaged people who not only want to make a difference in the world but also have the skills and drive to do it. A big contributor to that has been the supportive environment fostered by the College, including its funding societies, sports, or even travel and study activities outside of Cambridge. Such support has allowed me to see and do things which would have simply been out of reach otherwise and which significantly broadened my horizons.
As a twice member of the Jesus College Student Union and member of the May Ball Committee, I've seen how easily Jesuans will come together to get stuff done and have fun while doing it. I am looking forward to speaking with alumni about their experiences at Jesus, as well as raising the funds the College needs to keep supporting students!
