My name is Omolara.

Fun fact: My first name is Ruth but everyone calls me Omolara.

I am a third year student at the University of Essex currently undertaking a placement year. I study English Language with Media Communication.

I have always been interested in both English Literature and Media Studies while at school and studied both subjects during my A-Levels. I enjoyed them both thoroughly that I could not decide to hone in on one so I am studying both as a degree.

By the end of the year, I want to become more confident in BSL (British Sign Language) so that I can communicate with everyone (verbally and non-verbally)!
