Student, University of St Andrews

I am a 3rd year History student from the University of St Andrews. I have just completed my Semester 1 study abroad to the University of Oslo, Norway, and so have now moved on to Charles University in Prague!

My research analysed the words and phrases of key documents of 1910s Ireland, and used these to evaluate the wider ideologies of Nationalism and Unionism, particularly concerning individual experiences of the ideologies.

My research proved the value of speeches and literature to the historian in uncovering wider society. Determined to build upon this research, I am currently creating a website. This will function as an online archive for speeches and literature and offer my research as an interpretation to aid in understanding. I hope that this will be an accessible and beneficial tool for those interested in Irish history.

When I'm not reading, researching and writing about History, I run my own small-business, enjoy traveling, and have a passion for learning languages. 

Feel free to connect here!

Hi, my name is Pearls (She/Her); I am a second-year Law LLB student at Leeds.

***********************

My first-year research measured the impact of gamifying learning on improving the attainment score and content retention levels of ethnic minority and socio-economically disadvantaged students at Multi-Academy Trusts. 

I co-founded the Leeds University branch of the 93% Club and acted as its Schools Outreach Officer for nearly two years. In recent years I have volunteered at my local Citizens Advice. I will be tutoring primary level English as part of the Laidlaw Foundation’s tutoring initiative with The Tutor Association.

This June, I will be embarking on a year-long placement as a Contract Management Intern at The Walt Disney Company.
