Course: PhD Humanities
Hometown: Kingston Upon Thames
Other information: I came to Kingston after being employed for five years. I am a Kingston University Student Ambassador.
I chose Kingston because... Kingston is the home of the London Graduate School; London's most exciting centre for the critical humanities. I am supervised by leading academics here and have exposure to CRMEP (Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy) which has recently moved to Kingston. It is a strong place for arts and humanities research.
I have got to where I am now.... I studied fashion management and worked for five years in the fashion industry before taking the step to return to studying. Since completing my masters I realised how much I loved researching and didn't look back - a PhD was the next step.
My plans for the future are... to hopefully become a lecturer and published academic.
