About me

  • Societies I am a part of and what they do!

  • 7 things I wish I knew before moving to Scotland

    Just because Dundee is “the sunniest city in Scotland” does not mean it will be sunny every day. Most days are gloomy, but they do have warm summers here! It can get VERY cold, so if you’re from a warm country, invest in warm boots, a coat and fluffy socks! You will most definitely need […]
