About our guests
Chosen object: daily journal
Niamh is a second-year French and Linguistics student at the University of Edinburgh. She is also the Projects Manager at FreshSight, a student-led consultancy that aims to create positive social impact through the provision of practical, sustainable and innovative business solutions.
When she’s not taking part in her extracurricular activities and creative pursuits, Niamh can usually be found on the fourth floor of the library. She’s passionate about social justice, languages and cake.
Chosen object: first whistle
Hollie is Scottish Rugby’s first contracted female referee. She had played for Scotland U20 but after a shoulder injury, she hung up her playing boots and picked up the whistle instead.
After graduating from the University of Edinburgh in 2014 in Economic History, Hollie worked in finance for two years and credits her former colleagues with supporting her move to refereeing full time.
She has since refereed in a number of major tournaments including the 2018 Commonwealth Games, Rugby World Cup Sevens, and the 2019 Women’s Six Nations Championship.
