Hi, my name is Erin. I'm a third-year psychology and criminology student in Cambridge.

I study full-time three days a week, usually starting around midday. On Mondays, I spend my mornings meeting my dissertation project manager before going to my lectures in the afternoon. Aside from my classes, I can usually be found around campus with a coffee and my laptop or a good book!

Originally, I commuted to university from a rural area of Norfolk but moved quite recently into my own apartment with my partner which we have just finished decorating and making our own.

When I'm at home there is nothing I love more than baking – especially a nice chocolate cake that goes with a hot cup of coffee. I also enjoy looking around the beautiful city of Cambridge which has plenty to discover, like my favorite bookshop, Heffers. There is always loads going on, so I try and make the most of it as a welcome break from studying.
