I’m the first person in my family to go to university. None of us really knew what to expect from this whole experience, or how to deal with everything that was thrown at us.

It was terrifying at times but we got through it together and, now that things have calmed down, I can safely say it’s all worked out.

I’m an undergraduate at the university, studying Music and Music Technology. For the most part, I’m writing a zombie book or one about an amnesiac with powers. Sometimes I’ll play the drums if I have the time and a kit to play on. Though sometimes I just sit around and read fiction or scroll through social media endlessly.
