While most of her classmates are busy cramming for exams, this trainee doctor is busy raising her public profile.
Carina Tyrrell is a student at Cambridge University, and has already got a first for her degree.
She's also already been crowned Miss Cambridgeshire. Next stop England, then possibly, the world.
But have beauty pageants changed since Carina was growing up?
Many of the old cliches abound. There are points for charity work, modelling and dressmaking skills.
There's also a talent round, and that's where Carina's obvious skill and intelligence is difficult to argue with.
But it is still a beauty contest. And it was winning the bathing suit round that secured Carina's place in the final.
Opponents of beauty pageants have always argued that those taking part are reinforcing an outdated and sexist, misogynistic view of women but Carina says that isn't the case.
She argues that both men and women are equal, and that she is simply exercising her right to compete.
Carina is already Miss Cambridgeshire. The judges will decide whether she's crowned Miss England. But is she Miss-representing women? That's still up for debate.
