Why did you choose Geography?

Geography to me is about bridging our environment and society together, which I always enjoyed learning at school. Further I chose to study Geography because of the skills gained, knowing that we use our understanding to make a real difference in helping others.

What is an interesting fact about yourself?

Most of the time, you can catch me sleeping almost everywhere. I'm literally a grandma sleeping half of the day and soemtimes consider many hours of rest naps. My frinds even have a collection of me sleeping during my 2nd year fieldtrip to Morocco.

Why did you choose Geography?

Officially, beacuse I've always had a deep passion for space, place and landscape. Unofficially, it was offered to me instead of IR, and after looking into the syllabus, a less political and more scientific approach, among other things, to the natural and artificial world and their problems, spoke to me.

What is an interesting fact about yourself?

I'm surprisingly boring, I have a cool trick to fold t-shirts quickly though.
