Camilla is in her third year of study of a BA in Anthropology at the University of Sussex. Her fascination with social anthropology stems from her desire to critically analyse culturally sensitive issues and to think deeply and practically about economic, social and political change. While at university, Camilla has developed her interest in the anthropology of gender and sexuality, and is keen to pursue post-graduate study in related fields. Her Programme winning paper combines her love for contemporary music and social theory, and questions the role of urban space in the emergence of hip-hop.
Throughout her studies, Camilla has committed herself to a number of internships across third and corporate sectors. She has worked with large NGOs such as Save the Children, the Government Department for International Development (DFID), as well as television production and publishing sectors, most notably First News – the UK’s only national newspaper for children. In 2015, she was given the opportunity, thanks to the British Council, to travel to Delhi and Mumbai as part of their Generation UK-India Study India programme.
