Why did you choose to study Sociology at the University of Leicester?

There are a variety of reasons. The fact I was given a personal tour of the university by Dr Patrick White in 2010 spoke volumes. Patrick took time out of his own busy schedule to help me decide on Leicester. Albeit at the time it was only a small gesture, in the grand scheme of things, it was his passion and drive to help recruit pupils that won me over.
The University of Leicester really is the best place to develop socially and cognitively. The resources, support networks and diverse student cohort make it an incredible place to work and study. You are taught by real research professionals with real research credentials. That alone is incredibly inspiring.

How has studying Sociology influenced your career choice?

I have always been one to question. As a child I grew up reading Malcolm X and George Orwell. Sociology provided me with a lovely fusion of politics, law, citizenship, geography, history and everything in between. Sociology has allowed me to become more conscious of the social world through an analytical gaze.

How has Sociology shaped your view of everyday life?

I don't think I could form many of my opinions or views without Sociology. There is so much to question, so much to want to know and discover. My views of social class, race, religion, politics, culture, the media and global issues have all been shaped by my time studying sociology.
