Hey! I’m Perry, a third year studying BA Drama (including a year abroad) at Essex. I’ve lived in Essex my whole life, but as of July 2016 I’ve been on my year abroad studying at Queensland University of Technology (or QUT for short) in Brisbane, Australia. My time at Essex has been brilliant but I decided to study on the other side of the world this year to travel the world and basically go somewhere where the sun shines a little more than in the UK!

In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my friends, going to the theatre, or planning my next trip away! I’m the kind of person who loves to get stuck in, go on adventures and generally live life to the full!

So what are you gonna get out of this blog? I’m going to be writing about my personal experiences as a University student and snippets about student life which you won’t find in a prospectus! I’ve been lucky enough to be part of some incredible things during my time at Essex! Some of my highlights include working as part of a student team for the news company ITN, being the Arts Convenor for the Societies Guild and writing a script for the Theatre Arts Society’s annual Pantomime.

Life is never boring being a Drama student and this blog is going to be no different!
