About Me



About Me

I’m in the final year of my medical genetics undergrad degree, which is kind of terrifying. When I’m not studying (or on autostraddle obvs) I’m probably daydreaming about/ watching/ attempting to learn to play roller derby. I also have a lot of love for cats, guitars and youtube.
