About

Hello. I’m Nina. A PGCert Inclusive Arts alumna and a former staff member (I worked for a few years in the Alumni office). I am now relocated to Kent where I work and study in Canterbury.

Leaving Brighton was heart-breaking, I had come to think of myself as a Brightonian, but I felt it was time for a change. But I never wanted to completely sever my ties with Brighton so I kept my blog (which you’re reading) and repurposed it to be about post-university life.

Higher Education is a sector I feel hugely passionate about. As a young person, university was seen as something the likes of me did not do. And when I finally arrived in Brighton the culture shock was immense (especially after deferring a year when my course did not run due to low numbers). I never felt happy as an undergraduate, but luckily the support in University of Brighton gave me the confidence to apply for a post-graduate course! It was a bumpy ride to say the least but it shaped me into a person that I like.

Outside my university/college life, I like digital technology (especially when it is used alongside art and/or learning), going to museums, café culture, playing Minecraft, volunteering for my local college’s student union, spending time in Folkestone’s Creative Quarter, writing poetry/prose, visiting charity shops and second-hand stores.

You’ll always find me in the kitchen at parties.
