Q. What or who inspired you to follow your career?
I was inspired to get into media by getting involved with Student Radio at Exeter University.
Q. What do you feel you gained by attending a girls’ only school?
I feel that there was much less pressure and competition – we were also able to concentrate in an age where hormones were ever present. Overall, it’s a much nicer atmosphere and one where the teachers were able to focus on you better as an individual and tailor your education to you.
Q. Any advice for girls planning their university and/or career choices?
Visit the universities as you’ll get a real feel for how well you’d fit in by visiting the site / campus. There will usually be one that stands-out as the place for you.
