Sophie Thorpe
Downing, Linguistics A Russian supervisor asked Sophie in her first year if her performance was lacking due to a terminal illness. Sadly her poor attendance and low marks had more to do with her dedication to the Dirty Double. And a new found love of the University Wine Society. Life improved after a switch to Linguistics, but her loyalty to Cambridge's nightlife has never come under question. Callous and classy, Sophie decided to ignore a commenter who told her to "stop talking out of your prudish, judgemental arse" and took up a column.
