I had an incredible time at Hertford, and have fond memories of sitting on the quad with Simpkin and late night tutes with Peter. I learnt a ton (much more philosophy than computer science, in the end) and made the best friends of my life there.
I had no idea what I wanted to do after graduating. After a while, I ended up working at a small digital agency (called AND Digital) in London. I joined thinking I’d become a coder, but ended up learning lots about product management and user experience design.
This experience gave me the courage to leave, and in August 2020, I started my company, Sound Off. We’re making it easier to get all the proven benefits of journaling, without any of the hassle.
If you’re interested in my journey, startup life, UX design, or even post-Kantian philosophy — feel free to get in touch. I know it’s hard to figure out what to do after uni, but there’s no set path, and I’d be happy to chat to you about what’s out there!
