What do you do and why do you do it?

As a student, I spend a lot of time on my computer, but I don't just do that in a library (boring!) Me and my laptop explore the city.

You’re broken hearted - what tracks does your heartbreak playlist consist of?

Taylor Swift - so much Taylor Swift. Some things dont change from when you're fifteen (and someone tells you they love you...)

What are the best TV shows of all time?

Friends (is it me, or did it get better when it went on Netflix?)

Name some spots in Cambridge, UK that are good for a Tinder date.

196 cocktail bar on Mill Road is an especially funky hideaway. It looks like nothing from the outside - except in summer where they put seats outside that go all the way down the street - but then you step in and its an intimate but popping hang that feels like a berlin-esque edgy speakeasy... and as for the cocktails.. oof!

Who’s your hero and where in Cambridge, UK would you take them out for a serious hang?

Shakespeare. I'd take him to the Robert Graham 1874 Whisky and Cigars on Sussex st. We would sit down stairs and smoke cigars and drink whiskey and I would ask him how the hell he came up with all those charaters.

Where do you buy those fabulous clothes of yours?

Cambridge charity shops are always surprising me with their hidden gems

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?

Punting!

Which snacks can you only get in your country, and which ones do you recommend?

Fudge (for free on kings parade!)

What are the Cambridge, UK spots a first-time visitor can’t miss?

Fitzwilliam Museum

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

Tel Aviv - crazy night life, warm people (and weather), the beach, and such good food!
