Amy is studying towards a BA in Natural Sciences at Trinity College.

Outside her studies, Amy has had a successful year playing for Trinity College Women’s Netball Team as both Centre and Goal Defence.

She also trained to become eligible to be a member of the backstage crew with the University's Theatre Society.

Amy supported students applying to Cambridge as part of the Target Oxbridge Scheme. She volunteered for ChaOS, a society promoting a love of science to the public, by giving pop-up science demonstrations around the UK. She also attended the BT & Aleto Leadership Programme and gained conversational proficiency in British Sign Language.

Beacon Workshop Participation

Amy’s 2022 Summer Beacon Citizenship Project focused on improving access to education for students, both in the UK and on the African continent.

In Leadership Workshops, Amy grew in confidence as the year progressed, showing greater engagement and more willingness to share her ideas, as well as to lead her group.
