Who am I?

“I graduated from Leeds Beckett University’s School of Social Sciences with a BA (Hons) in Sociology. I was driven to study sociology because I wanted to understand society better and why it is the way it is. When I moved to Leeds, in 2018, I loved it! I found it so fun and exciting and decided I never wanted to leave. I’m a people person; I love chatting and meeting new and different people.

After finishing my degree I applied to NSCD to work in student services. It only took one chat with some existing staff members to realise this was the place for me! I thrive somewhere creative; there’s always something happening and someone presenting me with something new.

Studying Sociology made me want to help people and support them to reach their potential and here I was given that opportunity.”

Before coming to Leeds for University Alice worked several summer stints in HR. While Alice studied she worked as a Support Worker, through the pandemic, caring for adults with learning difficulties before joining NSCD as a recent graduate.
