Describe what you do

I'm an artist and graphic designer with many other hobbies as it's hard to pick just one thing. I'm obsessed with print-design so that is a big part of my work.

What female artists do you admire?

Joy Hester - She was one of the first female artists to truly inspire me and open my eyes to a way of artistic expression I hadn't really seen elsewhere. I'm currently obsessed with Maren Karlson, a Berlin-based artist who's work I can really relate to. The way she presents females in her work as a way of expressing her own desire to be a more powerful and intimidating woman is something I love.

What do you do?

I play music in a band called Miss June, and I'm also a 5th year Medical Student!

Why did you decide to study medicine?

I'm not sure that I can give a short answer here. This is actually the big question they ask you in your interview for med school. It's the great divider, the weeder-outer of applicants. I think a lot of people try to give an ultimately altruistic answer. I guess I never really decided as such to be a doctor. I started in Biomedical Science with the goals of getting into Tech and Biomedical Engineering because I liked physics and math. But friends in my class told me I should apply for medicine because one year of Biomed counts as pre-med and I had nothing to lose. So I did and I got in, I remember the feeling of sheer panic when I realized what a commitment I had made by accepting my place but I also felt the magnetism of possibilities. So I told the interviewers the same thing that I'll tell you; I never intended to do medicine, it just started to happen and it happened quickly. Because I am and have always been completely fascinated with human beings. Our anatomy, biology and psychology as a species, our potential and our downfalls.
