Josh Dickins

Senior Tab reporter

Clare, English MPhil Having been rejected from Cambridge twice as an undergraduate, Josh spends most of his time wandering around the city lost while pretending to study at Anglia Ruskin. Whenever he’s not failing to cope with these feelings of crippling inadequacy, he can be found taking life tips from The Simpsons and moaning loudly about Tottenham. He joined The Tab purely so he could write puns on a daily basis and he was once stung on the arse by a jellyfish.
