#MeetTheTeamMonday: Amy McClelland

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Nottingham chapter.

Each week we will be introducing you to a member of our team with our series #MeetTheTeamMonday. This week, Amy is answering some questions…


Hey Amy! What year are you in and what are you studying at the University of Nottingham?

First year and studying English BA.


How would your best friend describe you in 3 words?

She said, ‘funny, cute and clever’. The latter one is debatable – but I’m not going to pretend I wasn’t pleased with it!


Are you a night in or a night out kinda person?

Night out, for sure! I came to Uni having not really gone out that much whereas now I go out clubbing at least twice a week which is kinda crazy! I can safely say university has changed me (for the better I’d like to think).


What is your plan for when you finish university?

I’ve had my heart set on teaching for quite a while but I’m also quite attracted to the idea of being a journalist so I’m keeping my options open. Anyway, it’s my first year so I’ve got plenty of time…


What has being at university taught you? 

If I could give anyone one piece of advice to people coming to Uni, it would be to just put yourself out there because you never know what good things may come your way.


What is your favourite spot on campus?

Portland Coffee is by far my favourite place on campus. You’ll always find me there with my laptop and a Cappuccino, or just catching up with friends… I have nearly tried everything on their menu!


What is your favourite place in the world that you have visited?

Berlin is one of my favourite cities ever! In particular, Potsdam with its prestigious palaces and botanical gardens, and its rich history during the World Wars and the Cold War. I also went to Peru for a month and that was an amazing experience – the cities I visited were enriched in colour and the views from the top of Machu Picchu are breath-taking. Plus, you can’t beat a llama selfie!


What is one thing that people wouldn’t necessarily know about you?

I’m a child at heart! I feel like I can come across as quite mature and serious to people that I don’t know very well… but honestly, that couldn’t be further from the truth. I went to Disney World when I was 18 and I still sleep with teddy bears on my bed. Growing old scares me!

Nottingham '22

I’m a second year English student at the University of Nottingham. In my spare time, I enjoy watching films and TV shows as much as I do reading books. Staying fit and healthy is very important to me but my love of chocolate is greater ;-) I love travelling and I would love to visit Italy because I’ve never been! I am a feature writer for HerCampus Nottingham magazine.
2019/ 2020 Editor-in-Chief for Her Campus Nottingham A love for writing, drinking tea & chatting about uncomfortable things.
