I’m Emilia and I’m about to start my final year at Cambridge, studying Human, Social and Political Sciences (HSPS), with a particular focus on Politics and International Relations. I go to Churchill (the best college, by the way…), and I’ve been involved in both college-based and university-wide societies. At college, I’ve been the co-captain for the Ladies Netball Team, been a part of the Women’s Football Team, and I’ve also taken part in the JCR Committee (which is essentially a student committee in charge of representing the undergraduate body at your college). I’ve also been the Publicity Representative of the Scandinavian Society for almost two years.
I’m half Swedish, half Finnish, but I’ve lived in Switzerland since I was 11 years old. In Switzerland, I attended an International School just south of Zurich. I actually also attended Cambridge Immerse myself in 2014 (doing the International Relations course), and I absolutely loved it! I’d say that it was one of the most helpful ways to prepare for my application to Cambridge.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
