Aatqa (NC 2020) - Medicine
I was born in Scotland (Glasgow to be specific) but have been living in England for the past few years which explains my funky accent. I love to rollerblade around Cambridge in my free time, and am currently learning how to skateboard which includes a lot of falling over. Despite being a medic, I love to read just about anything. I’m really interested in the medical humanities so anything which sheds a light on the human condition is bound to be a page turner for me. My favourite colour is lilac and my MBTI type is INFJ.
Amy (NC 2019) - Classics
I’m one of the current captains of Newnham College Boat Club (alongside Beth) and I absolutely love rowing! My favourite colour is purple and I really enjoy baking, especially cakes and cookies.
Beth (NC 2019) - Engineering
I’m completely obsessed with rowing and NCBC but I also do a lot of other sports including netball, hockey and dancing! I’ve danced on stage in a professional pantomime and have also been on stage with Pasha from Strictly Come Dancing!! I love all animals and want to work to help stop climate change in the future.
Katia (NC 2019) - English
I have two cats that I adore, I am an avid cross stitcher and love to embroider, I have worked in two libraries, I am Welsh, I love reading and am co-founder of Newham Book Club, I write and present a podcast with other Newnhamites.
Katrina (NC 2018) - Psychological & Behavioural Sciences
I am learning British Sign Language and I love playing dungeons and dragons – sometimes I try and combine them! I wrote a musical and played a method actor playing a cow in a film during lockdown.
Kitty (NC 2020) - Psychological & Behavioural Sciences
I’m a cat and dog lover, I enjoy hiking at home in the Lakes and would love to travel to Italy! I speak Arabic, love Indian, Thai and Lebanese food and enjoy baking.
Lottie (NC 2019) - English
I’m currently Newnham’s JCR President, I also love creative writing and run Newnham’s Poetry Soc! When I’m not doing College work, I enjoy wild swimming and playing wheelchair rugby.
Marcella (NC 2019) - Music
I love going to museums and concerts, watching films, and sewing clothes for myself and my friends.
Mia (NC 2019) - Classics
I’m from the wonderful seaside town of Brighton. I love learning about art and procrastinating writing my essays by taking trips to the Fitzwilliam Museum or even sneaking off to London to visit the Tate. When I discover a new song I usually listen to it endlessly on repeat until I can never listen to it again. I enjoy taking long walks (when the weather permits) and meeting new people. One of my favourite things to do is visit flee markets and bric o brac stores, picking up odd curiosities to add to my collection of clutter at home!
Niamh (NC 2020) - MML
I am a big cat person who also enjoys running and reading (normally about German history). In my spare time I’m learning Russian and Greek!
Sanah (NC 2020) - History
I have been fortunate enough to have participated in volunteering and social action campaign initiatives, on a wide range of causes, for a number of years now. Indeed, I believe that learning from one another’s campaigning, lobbying and proposals is really important, on many levels; be it local, regional, national, international. Campaigning has shown how working harmoniously together can lead to projects being incredibly successful.
Sarah (NC 2020) - Human, Social, & Political Sciences
I have a summer job at a children’s museum – things that feature in my workplace include a giant bed, a red bus only big enough for one person and a wardrobe that goes to Narnia! When not at Newnham I live in Oxford.
Sasha (NC 2018) - Modern & Medieval Languages
I love dogs, long countryside walks, and dance – I once got to live my Strictly dream by dancing at Blackpool! My ideal afternoon would be spent in a cosy spot with a good book and a big mug of tea!
Sophie (NC 2020) - Natural Sciences
I love theatre and was actually in a show at the National Theatre in London and created a show for the Edinburgh Fringe! When I was younger I was desperate to be a fashion designer and I make some of my own clothes and do a lot of embroidery – I’m now hoping Material Science could lead into high-tech fashion. I’ve just started college lacrosse despite being horrendously unsporty and absolutely loving it!
Tara (NC 2020) - Human, Social, & Political Sciences
Cats and dogs but mostly cats! Before coming to Cambridge to study politics I worked for a year in London as a nurse. I love to paint and you could see some of my work this summer on St. Johns Street at GallerieV.
