Derry - Áine Morrison

Hiya! I'm Áine Morrison, I'm 25 years old, and I'm thrilled to be representing Derry as the Derry Rose this year. I was born and raised in Derry City, and I am a true Derry Girl at heart. I recently received a Postgraduate Diploma in Physician Associate Studies and a Bachelors degree in Biomedical Science. In addition to Science, I have a strong interest in music and play the piano and flute. I love volunteering and have volunteered as a Team Leader in Children’s Summer schemes throughout my teenage years. My family are a huge inspiration to me and together we have participated in many charity events such as the LegenDerry Relay for Life in June. I also love travelling and experiencing new places and cultures, in Summer 2018 I worked as a Science Specialist Counsellor at a special needs camp in America. I am so excited for the adventures I will have as the Derry Rose, and I am looking forward to bringing a little bit of Derry to every place I visit.
