"The moment I began studying anthropology I fell in love with the subject."

I came to Goldsmiths as a mature student. The moment I began studying anthropology I fell in love with the subject. It has the power to utterly transform the way you see the world, deconstructing even the most basic preconceptions and assumptions.

When I graduate I hope to continue my studies and make anthropology my life's career.
