1st Year Undergraduate | Music
Hi there, I’m Julia and I am a first year Music student at Trinity Hall. When I’m not working on my degree I enjoy singing with Trinity Hall Chapel Choir and Cadenza, one of Cambridge’s mixed-voice acapella groups! Outside of music, I have loved getting involved in charity work this year, and am a college representative for Cambridge Pink Week, raising awareness and funds for breast cancer charities. I am also a college rep for the Cambridge Homeless Outreach Programme and a member of Cambridge Women in Business and the Human Rights Law Society. Although it has been a slightly unusual first year, I have loved college life so far and feel so welcomed into the Trinity Hall community.
I’m really looking forward to working on the Telethon this year and sharing experiences of college life with alumni!
1st Year Undergraduate | Land Economy
I’m Annabelle, a first-year student studying Land Economy! My start to university has certainly been strange to say the least, but the amazingly friendly welcome I received right from the moment I stepped through the Porter’s Lodge has made Trinity Hall really feel like a home-from-home! Whilst the Cambridge workload is demanding, it’s so wonderful to be spending time doing a subject I love.
In my free time, I enjoy singing in the Trinity Hall Chapel Choir and playing the trombone in the Cambridge University Wind Orchestra. Music gives me such a sense of camaraderie and really allows me to relax after a hectic day. I am also a College representative for the Cambridge Women in Business Society; recent events have included panels with BAFTA winners and OBE recipients – I never fail to come away inspired. As a Fresher’s representative on the JCR, I’ve also really been able to get involved with life at Trinity Hall – now I just can’t wait to be back in Cambridge!!
3rd year Undergraduate | History
Hi, my name’s Nathan and i’m a (would be) third-year historian at Trinity Hall. This year I’m studying politics and law at Pantheon-Sorbonne in Paris and I’m looking forward to being back next year. College has been one of the best parts of my Cambridge experience, and I’ve loved getting stuck into the societies that Trinity Hall supports, from the more traditional law, history, and football to the less-well known, but equally important, hummus and coffee.
PhD | Asian and Middle Eastern Studies
Her current research is concerned with modern Chinese literature and culture, memory studies and adaptation studies.
3rd Year Undergraduate | Music
I’m Daisy and I’m a final year undergraduate at Trinity Hall studying Music! I play the piano, sing in the Chapel Choir and occasionally dabble in playing the cello (and even more occasionally, the double bass). Singing in the choir and being involved with College musical life has definitely been one of the highlights of my time at Trinity Hall.
When I’m not singing or making music, I love knitting, sewing and making my own jewelry. Like many others, I have recently been learning how to make sourdough bread from scratch – which has not always gone very well but has been a journey of discovery nonetheless!

During her free time, she enjoys playing scrabble, cooking and doing volunteer work at Children’s Homes and Child rescue centres. Her motto is believe it, achieve it.
2nd year Undergraduate | Geography
2nd Year Undergraduate | History
I’m Eliza, a second-year historian. Trinity Hall is well-known as the friendliest college and I think that’s the basis for all the opportunities available here. Students wouldn’t be able to engage and experiment if they didn’t feel supported. I know that the warmth of our community has encouraged me to try a range of new and different activities in my time here. I’ve rowed in bumps, planned the June Event and DJ’d our bops experiences only made possible by the College environment. Having a strong basis at Trinity Hall has allowed me to explore my own passions, journalism and communication. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed organising speakers for our History Society and managing current affairs at the radio station Cam FM. A lot of my work has focused on current projects at Cambridge, which I can’t wait to share with our alumni!
Final Year PhD | Zoology
I am a final year zoology PhD student at Trinity Hall. My work investigates the evolutionary history of rodents and rabbits, from 60 million years ago to the present day. I have represented the graduate community as Secretary of the MCR Committee and am a cox for the Trinity Hall Boat Club.
