Welcome to my website!
I’m Leila (pronounced Lyla) a 22 year old with a passion for health, wellness and self-improvement. I have a degree in Psychology and also love writing, reading, travel and am a self-confessed foodie.
I am currently living in London and am embarking on an MSc in Health Psychology at UCL. This masters program encompasses what I think healthcare should be all about – a patient centered approach that addresses specific behaviours such as diet, physical activity and mental health to improve people’s lives and prevent the need for future medication.
My writing journey started on Instagram with my account @thehealthstudent; where I share aspects of my life, health and wellness tips and lots of healthy recipes. My love for writing has driven me to start this blog to expand on some of the topics that I am passionate about.
This website is my little corner of the internet where you can expect;
blog posts, healthy recipes, lifestyle tips, daily routines, adventures and my thoughts on a range of health topics. I have a tonne of ideas for things to come and hope you return back to see what I’m posting!
