Meet your User Support Librarian

Hi, my name is Vashti.

I was born in Bangor, grew up in North Wales and speak Welsh as a second language. I come from a “non-traditional university background” and never assumed I would go to university, but I read lots of books when I was a child, and was encouraged to apply to Cambridge when I was doing my A Levels. Much to my surprise I ended up at King’s College Cambridge studying Social Anthropology, meeting lovely people and having a great time.
