Hi I’m Carina, going in to second year. I am this years grad/mature rep so if you are not a school leaver, I’m here to look after you, welcome you to the city and do some fun events! Please feel free to message if you have any questions at all!
What’s your favourite thing about BSMS?
Definitely getting to talk about medicine to other people that love it as much as I do! I have met the best friends here that are all like-minded people.
What is your best memory of BSMS?
Probably choreographing medic revue. It was really hard work alongside studying but I loved working with people from all years and it was an amazing week.
What would be your dream job if you weren’t doing medicine?
Well in my past career I was a dancer and choreographer for the RAD and BBC. I loved it but my heart is now with medicine. (Plus I got too old and had too many kids to be messing around on stage!)
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
Is Gin an option? 😉
Otherwise definitely going to have to be true to my Aussie roots and say bbq. On the beach preferably.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
I honestly love Brighton! I’ve lived in lots of different places and countries but you have the best of everything here. Lots of things to do for my children, the sea to paddleboard in, great hospitals, the downs to run on, lots of quirky bars and restaurants to enjoy and I can see the sea from my room. Perfect!
I can’t wait to meet you all 🎉
