I grew up in Shropshire, but went to high school and sixth form over the border in Powys, where I fell in love with Wales – the language, the landscape, the people. I decided I wanted to come to Aberystwyth when I was fourteen years old, and when I eighteen I came out here with my collections of mugs and of Shakespeare.

Mine hasn’t been quite what you’d call a ‘typical’ University experience – in my Fresher’s Week I didn’t do very much drinking – unless you count all the cups of tea I drank with the man that I’m marrying this summer. I adore Aberystwyth, and I’ll be sticking around in the town after I’ve graduated, but it’s something special to be a student here. I’ll be trying to share with you in some small ways exactly why this place is so very important to me.
