Hey, my name is Gemma Bridge. I graduated from Birmingham University in 2014. I then went to America on a scholarship to complete a Master’s in public health and exercise physiology. Since graduating from America I worked as a freelance writer and then went to Leeds Beckett University to complete a PhD in public health. Since finishing my PhD this year I work now as a researcher and freelance writer.
