More about Molly

My name is Molly O'Connor, I'm 23 years old and I’m from Dublin. I went to Dublin 7 Educate Together and then went to secondary school in Mount Temple.

She was always very passionate about writing and was always encouraged by my family, friends and teachers to pursue a career in journalism and went in to study Communication Studies in DCU.

After finishing my undergraduate degree, I went on to study a Masters in Journalism in NUI Galway. Although this marks the end of my academic journey for the moment, I would love to eventually study a Master of Science in Science Communications.

In her spare time Molly loves music. She plays piano and guitar. Her taste in music is quite broad, from Mac Miller to Ed Sheeran to Blink-182! Molly says she loves horse riding, running, listening to music and playing sudoku!
