I am the Environment Editor at the Glasgow Guardian covering news, political, and opinion pieces on issues surrounding the environment at the University and beyond.

What I cover

I cover social justice issues relating to the environment, as well as reflective political pieces. I believe in sharing information about the environment and promoting positive changes that will help in the fight against global warming and climate change. Holding the University and other bodies to account for their environmental shortcomings is crucial.


I’m a second year History student from Inverness. This is my first year at the paper, and I’ve loved establishing the new Environment section. I have a pet hamster at university and a family dog at home. Other than student journalism, I enjoy wild swimming, Scottish pop-music, and nights out with my girlfriends.
