NI

Interview age:

17 - 22

Class:

MC

Ethnicity:

WHITE

Alice grew up in a rural location in a large well off family. While close to her siblings and parents, she was also very keen to live away from direct family influence and to establish her own independent identity. She applied to universities in England and Scotland and moved away from home to study, relishing the freedom this afforded her.  Well supported by her parents while at university, Carol made regular trips home. The demands of her university course contributed to significant stress at times and her relationship with a fellow student caused some tension at home. Alice questioned her choice of career at various stages, her many different interests sometimes opening up other possible career options.  Alice was always very aware of the privileges she had growing up and, although aware of sectarian divisions and conflict, did not experience it in her home community or at the integrated school she attended. She took full advantage of the expanding night-time economy while in Northern Ireland, and as a student living away from home relished the freedom and social opportunities even more.
