Kate Williams


I’m a BA French and Italian student at UCL, in my fourth and final year at university. I’ve always been a bookworm, and I hope to turn that lifelong love of literature into a career when I graduate. I particularly love reading books by women; my favourite authors include Sally Rooney, Elena Ferrante and Zadie Smith. I also try to read more books in translation as I strongly believe that there is so much incredible writing out there around the world that it would be a shame to miss out by reading only English-language books. In my spare time, I enjoy playing field hockey, going for long runs, and I’ve recently started to learn how to paint!
