Hello, I’m Tabitha – a Yorkshire girl born and bred who has decided to take the leap across the country and move to the big city, London! I wonder how long it will take me to convert to becoming a Southerner?
I am profoundly passionate about nature and the environment, having grown up in a small countryside village surrounded by lots of animals, before going on to study Ecology and Conservation Biology at the University of Sheffield. I even got to complete an internship in the Peruvian Amazon last summer, spending two months in the rainforest studying neotropical mammals!
I also enjoy playing the piano, some great classics of course but particularly the really geeky soundtrack scores – Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Les Misérables, Twilight, Star Wars, you name it! My taste in listening to music is equally uncool, and fairly random, from Britney Spears, to Amy Winehouse, to Motown, to 70s disco and funk…
A self-confessed chocaholic, I often partake in horse riding or dancing in order to compensate. I would also absolutely love to travel and explore more of the world – Eastern Africa is definitely up there on my list; it is my dream to observe the ecosystems and wildlife there!
