Amy studied Psychology at BSc and MSc level before working as an assistant psychologist/researcher with young people experiencing mental health difficulties. In 2010 she packed up her bags and backpacked around Asia for 19 months, stopping only to help with the Japanese tsunami clean-up operation and to complete an internship at a Burmese human rights NGO. She’s just finished her LLM in Human Rights Law, and is increasingly interested in the ways in which states deal with dissent, both in policy and legislation, and through repressive police practices. Amy also loves to paint and is interested in art’s role in spreading messages of dissent and resistance. Amy is actively looking for writing and research projects to become involved with.
