My name is Mark.
I am originally from a small town called Kendal in Cumbria, (basically there's more sheep than people!), and the only thing we're known for is kendal mint cake.... which isn't actually a cake!?
I am currently a second year history student at York and I am a member of Alcuin college. My favourite period of history is the twentieth century and in particular, twentieth century British history.
I love playing sport and some of the sports I play include table tennis, pool, cricket and darts. This year I am first team captain for the university darts team, as well as Alcuin darts captain.
Despite my love of sport and competitive edge, I do have a softer side. Some of you may be surprised by my love of Rom-Coms???
I love studying at York as the university is really vibrant and exciting, there's always something new to do. It is also lovely to live and study in such a beautiful and historic city. I wouldn't change my decision to come here for the world!
