Member of the Month - October 2016

Amna B

What made you join Cam City WI?


I wanted to be a part of the WI for ages but never knew how to get involved. I always thought it was something you could only join at the recommendation of another member. Then I met Margot.

Who inspires you and why?

Of the people I know, I have to say my mum definitely. Growing up I massively underrated her value (and even now often take her for granted!) but she truly is an inspiration to me. 

My alternative answer is Rosalind Franklin for being so absolutely fabulous at science. She’s the reason I decided to BSc Biochemistry and then my MSc Analytical Bioscience project was done in the Rosalind Franklin lab at Birkbeck which was such an honour!

What's your life philosophy?

Cherish the old, experience the new

What are your secret skills?


Baking, knitting, crochet… basically I like to try anything to with craft.
That, and I’m disgustingly organised! Ooh and I’m obsessed with makeup, but I don’t think that’s a ‘secret’ skill

What's your guilty pleasure?

Keeping up with the Kardashians .

If you had a million pounds, what would you do with it?


I would buy a house to live in, a house or two to let to have a steady in come, go on an expensive holiday and then invest any money left over. That way I could retire straight away and still have an income.

What's on your bucket list?

I don’t really have a bucket list, I kind of just have random ideas and some of them end up becoming reality. Currently obsessing over going to Thailand or Africa to visit elephants. 

What would your ideal day entail?

This one’s easy – watching all 8 Harry Potter films back to back with an unlimited supply of crisps, popcorn and ice cream.
