Hi, I’m Olivia and I’m a 4th year politics student. I’ve just started my final year at Essex after spending my 3rd year studying abroad in America, which was basically me pretending I was on holiday for a year.

So far, my final year is going pretty well; I’m catching up with old friends and making plenty of new ones, and loving my course. As it’s my last year at uni (eek!) I’m making the most of every moment. Right now, I’m not sure what I want to do when I leave, it could be a masters, spending some time travelling, or getting one of those real life grown up jobs.

Outside of studying, I’ve taken up a lot of the opportunities our Students’ Union offers. I am part of the hockey and ultimate frisbee clubs on campus and I also work in the campus shop. Whilst this might sound like quite a lot, I love being busy and always having something to do.

I’m really looking forward to blogging my final year at Essex and letting you know all the things I get up to and if I ever make up my mind about what I want to do after graduation!
