Course: Early Childhood Studies BA (hons)

My name is Mitzi, and I am currently in my 2nd year at ARU, studying Early childhood Studies BA (hons). I am very passionate about making a difference to children's lives, which is why I love studying Early Childhood and learning about perspectives in early education. I enjoy studying my course, where I am able to express my ideas creatively and apply my theory to practice. I work with children in primary schools as part of my degree, supporting them with wider curricula subjects.

My hobby is writing for children and teenagers. I have self-published my children’s book, Cicerella: A modern fairy-tale. My degree has helped me improve my writing style and I look forward to applying this to new developments.
