Hi! I'm Jess, a 2nd Year Occupational Therapy student. I can’t wait to start writing blogs on my student experience at Cardiff University. I love Cardiff, it is such a welcoming city and has perfect spots to take visitors and friends. I really enjoy tap dancing and was so excited when I found out I could carry this interest on with the Broadway Dance Society at university. If you have any questions about my student experience, please feel free to message me through the UniBuddy service!
