Olivia is currently a second year student at the University of Birmingham working towards a degree in Political Science and Social Policy. Olivia’s independent study and module choices are focused around inequalities and differences within society and particularly women’s inequalities throughout history. Olivia works as a freelance as a journalist for Just Debate, a political online forum, writing and publishing concise articles about current political events and figures of influence within the political and public sphere. Olivia finds the debate that this sparks so interesting. Questioning and being curious about the reasoning behind other people’s beliefs as you challenge them with your own opinions and justifications.
