Roz at Play
Not one to stand still, Roz is currently studying towards an MSc in Digital Marketing at Chester University. When she’s not studying, you’ll find her hiking up mountains, kayaking, practising archery, dancing salsa, reading weighty novels, and trips to the theatre.
Sophy at Play

What's your favourite TED/TEDx talk and why?
After experiencing a heart attack, a nurse at Cardiac Rehab showed me this presentation when I was concerned that a stressful day at work might trigger another episode. Kelly’s view that that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case blew my mind at the time, and I’ve never worried about it since.
When you see how easy it is to create fake videos using AI, this talk will shock you like it did me. Now that the technology exists and is growing in popularity, it’s even harder to spot fake content online.
