I am currently a first-year student studying for a History BA at the University of Kent. Many elements of the Age of Revolution project interest me, yet I have a particular interest in social and political history.

As part of the project, I attended the trip to Waterloo in February earlier this year. This trip was designed for the team to get better established with one another, as well as giving us a unique opportunity to learn more about the French defeat at Waterloo.

Similarly, I am currently a member of a sub-team responsible for editing the website and uploading information regarding the objects which will feature on the projects webpage. This has required us to work closely with the company Culture24. In the future I am looking forward to becoming an ambassador for the projects external organisations and communicating our findings to school students.

The Age of Revolution project has equipped me with many new skills and passions, I am looking forward to continuing with the project and am excited to see how the project will develop.
