Learning about the charity SolidariTee last year through friends, I was resolved to volunteer as a student rep in this academic year. This entirely student-run charity raises money to provide help for the international assistance of refugees and asylum seekers. With a host of student reps around the globe, this charity has made a positive impact to the lives of refugees and asylum seekers across Europe.
A short while ago, although admittedly it feels a lifetime ago, I very luckily got the chance to visit the Big Apple with my family. In a whirlwind of a week filled with Christmas lights and bustle, we switched on tourist mode, crammed in all the art galleries possible and absorbed all we could of this fabulous city.
