…from Surrey / studies Philosophy / 3rd Year (UG)

Hello! My name is Alessandra (or Alex for short), and I am currently in my third year studying Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh. Find me in a comfy armchair pondering life’s biggest questions, roaming the city looking for inspiration (and good photos for Instagram), and just trying my best to embrace all aspects of life in Scotland. Lang may yer lum reek!

Why were you drawn to Edinburgh? 
I was drawn to Edinburgh not only because of its stellar reputation for Philosophy, but because it is a lively city that fuses the old and the new in such an interesting and picturesque way. (Also walking around Old Town is basically like walking around somewhere in the Harry Potter books, so what’s not to love.)
