Welcome to our 2020-2021 team of bloggers
Hi, nice to meet you! I'm Ané, a second-year Cognitive Science student, from Namibia. I am currently studying online from home, but hopefully, I'll be back in Edinburgh for semester 2. Wherever I am, I make time for the things I love, including painting, baking, exploring and reading. I also make time to be with the people I care about, whether it's family time, picnics with friends, or Facetime calls with far-away Edinburgh pals.
Hello! I’m Dakarai, an MSc Linguistics student from Zimbabwe. I have a deep love for language which consequently means that I love to read and write. Someday, I hope to share my work and have it leave an impact. Whenever I’m not occupied by my studies, you’ll find me wandering around Edinburgh trying to make the most of my time in the city by getting lost and finding myself in secret nooks and crannies I wouldn’t have found otherwise.
Hello! I'm Quinn, a first-year Psychology and Philosophy student at Edinburgh. I'm originally from San Francisco, California but I've spent the last few years in Amsterdam. With a keen interest in the arts and film-making, I hope to integrate my psychological and philosophical findings into my creative work. You can find me around the city with my camera, dancing in the Meadows, or climbing up Arthur's Seat.
Heyya! I’m Safeera and I am a first-year Philosophy and Psychology student. I try my best to live authentically and intentionally while empowering others to do the same. You will probably catch me either exploring around the city of Edinburgh, particularly in independent cafes, or at Portobello (I love the beach!), chatting away with friends or dancing around in my flat. I love learning, connecting with people and being creative. See you around!
