Emily Bailey-Page

Features Editor

Emily has just graduated from Cambridge with a degree in History, however much she tried to contort it into a Gender Studies degree at the time. She has written and edited extensively for Blueprint and Varsity Newspaper. As Features Editor, she wants the section to be a space where people can talk about the sometimes messy, complicated realities of life and mental health, where you don’t always have to be sure of the answer. She also publishes how-to guides and tips on self-care and accessing mental health support. She welcomes new writers.
