Team

We are a small team of students from across the world. This blog is totally independent and not affiliated to any university. However, the blog would not be here today if it wasn’t for Gower Street in Bloomsbury. We have a wide range of skills and experience and we love what we write and broadcast. If you want to get involved as contributor or have any queries then do not hesitate to get in contact with us.
