LOCATION: St Andrews, Scotland

I’m 21 years old and am doing a Master's in international security studies at the University of St Andrews, and my research and writing are rooted in global politics. I did my bachelor’s in international relations in Vienna, and before that, I lived in Hong Kong. I’m interested in writing about global news and politics.
