One World Week Coordinator 2006.

Life before Warwick:
International Baccalaureate at Aas Videregaende Skole, Norway.

The drive and inspiration amongst the students who have worked in One World Week for the past months.

Worst thing about working at Warwick:
The library, including the opening hours on Sundays.

Lifelong ambition:
Never to say "I regret not doing that."

People are always surprised to learn this about me, but...
I don’t like balloons.
