Old Scholar Gemma Hayward, who is currently taking a year out of medicine to study a global health MSc at the university of Maastricht in the Netherlands, let us know that she’d had her first paper accepted by the scientific publication PLOS.

The article considers how the media reports natural disasters and makes for very interesting reading and is especially refreshing in these days of ‘fake news’;  it’s good to see our Old Scholars seeking truth.

Meanwhile Gemma’s older sister Abi is studying journalism in Vancouver, Canada having recently interned at Canadian Geographic.

So fantastic to hear from our Old Scholars and see they continue to ‘Let their life speak’.
