Flick is starting her final year studying Modern Languages at the University of Birmingham. From a young age, music has been an important part of her life, not only as a means of being creative, but also as a way of relaxing.

Before University, she played the clarinet as a member of the Bradford Youth Orchestra whilst also playing saxophone as a member of the Leeds Youth Jazz and Rock Orchestra (LYJRO). Flick also formed a jazz saxophone quintet during her sixth form years. As well as playing baritone in Second City Sax, she enjoys playing with the University Saxophone Choir.
