My name is Daisy, and I am currently a student at the University of Cambridge studying for a BA in Classics. Outside of my studies, I also write for several publications at university, as well as pursuing my love for art and illustration. Currently based in and around Brighton, as well as in Cambridge.

I started studying at the University of Cambridge in 2021, having achieved a distinction in my art foundation qualification that year. I am currently studying for a BA in Classics, and am due to graduate in 2025. In my classical studies, I have a primary interest in imperial Roman history, as well as Roman historiography.
Outside of my academic work, I still try to pursue art & illustration as much as possible; as well as working as an illustrator for Varsity, Cambridge’s student newspaper, I try to practice as much as I can in my free time. I also write for several outlets at university (Varsity & Cambridge Creatives), with a focus on film and the arts.
