    Hi,
    so I am applying to UK universities this year and I was wondering about what to put in my PS. I shadowed an Italian senator this summer and I was wondering if I should name him in the PS. Do I say his name or just say a senator?

    Names are not important so you don't want to look like you're name dropping. What is important is what you've learnt, how it't relevant to what you're applying to study and why it makes you want to study this subject.
