☆ About Me ☆
My name’s Aika, I’m 25, Hong Kong Chinese & I’m a final year Trainee Clinical Psychologist at Oxford. I hope to de-mystify the clinical psychology career in the UK, increase the representation of diversity in the field and make Clinical Psychology and Oxbridge feel just a little bit more accessible and human if I can.
