What you don’t see on Instagram

Instagram is well known for filtering people’s lives to make it seem like everything is amazing. It couldn’t be more true in the case of travellers. Posting photos of white sandy beaches, old castles and temples, we leave out the...

8 things I wish I knew before I started travelling

The first time I travelled alone I remember being excited about the road ahead but nervous about things that could go wrong. Whilst I am not always happy when travelling, the ups far far outweigh the downs and I for one am so pleased that I made that...

Welcome to my website. It's got some photos, some writing, irregular updates on my life and some other things hidden around. I decided to ditch all my social media so this is a replacement, taking the things I enjoyed about social media and putting them on here. I've got a blog with articles about travel that I have written over time (this is not updated often). There is also a storybox, which is a non-social media alternative to Instagram (which I used to be quite active on).

Updates

This is what I've been up to recently, what I've got planned for the future or just things I am finding interesting.

  • Cambridge University

    Mathematics, St. John's College


    I am currently in my final year of studying the Maths Tripos at Cambridge. I have wanted to study maths for as long as I can remember wanting to study anything and I have really enjoyed my time so far in Cambridge; both the studying and the societies. I am currently looking to continue my studies by applying for Masters programs in Cambridge and further afield.

  • Books

    21 Lessons for the 21st century, Orthodoxy, Homo Deus


    Reading takes me ages and I usually have a few books on the go which I rarely finish. The last few weeks I have been reading 21 lessons for the 21st century, another in the historical and forward looking series from Yuval Noah Harari. The book presents a number of challenges society is facing due to the technological advancements in AI and Biotech.

  • Travelling

    Poland


    I will be visiting Krakow, Poland after Christmas. This is the only travelling I will be doing during the Christmas holidays since I am wanting to spend more time at home with my Family and also in Cambridge.

  • Data Science

    DataDiving, Python


    Going to an event from DataKind about using data for good last year got me excited about getting the charitable sector more involved with data science. I volunteered with Hania at another DataDive this November and enjoyed myself again. I have been trying to develop my data science skills by attending a course on Bioinformatics with Python.
