'Growing up I always wanted to improve the lives of the people around me. Studying Politics and International Relations at Hertfordshire was definitely the right choice for me. I go to every lecture and workshop looking forward to developing knowledge and skills that will help me make a positive political impact, as a student and after I graduate.'
