In episode 65, Imrie and Ruby swap wildly different uni experiences. Ruby thinks uni is worth the time and money, Imrie doesn’t. Listen in to see who you agree with. We love self-improvement here at Wanna Be, so we asked Ruby what skills she’d like to develop. You’ll never guess what she said. Also, Imrie tells of her adventures in Nicaragrua and Costa Rica. Could volunteering abroad be for you too?
