Hi! My name is Shona, I'm 23 and I'm a part-time modern languages student, part-time professional here in Sheffield. I'm also queer and black so no racists or homophobes please lol x

I have quite a few special requirements so please do read before contacting me :) I know my situation isn't right for everyone

1) I'm an ambulatory wheelchair user (that means I can and do walk unaided, but sometimes I need a wheelchair if I'm not feeling great). I can manage a flight of stairs but lots of stairs isn't ideal!

2) I'm really looking for a place with a usable bath, as a good soak helps my pain management loads

3) Because of my underlying health problems I'm at high risk from covid, so I would need whoever I lived with to be comfy and happy with following the guidelines. Also for this reason, I feel like a smaller place, anything from 2 beds up, would be better for me right now.

I'm 100% understanding of the reality that a lot of young people who aren't at risk have little desire to follow the rules anymore, and honestly if I wouldn't be the right housemate / buddy for you that's fine!

4) My boyfriend is also a carer for me when I'm not very well and he's a huge help, so I would be requesting to still be able to bubble with him wherever I move (he is a single person household) :)

If all of that seems okay, then let me tell u a bit more about me!

I love cooking and baking (my new substitute for the pre-covid nights out boogying or raving). I have a small business making earrings and really enjoy crafts and being creative. I sing, I love board games, playing animal crossing, activism, lefty politics etc etc :) I also work as a nanny.

I would really like to be able to be friends and not just housemates with whoever I end up living with. I'm sociable and love good company (but also respect people's space). But with lockdown etc we're likely to spend a lot of time together, and it would be great if we got on well.

Sorry for the info dump, but please do contact me if you're interested! For buddy ups, I have a few lovely, central 2-bed apartments already lined up if you'd like any more info about those.

Speak soon hopefully x
