Why did you choose Royal Holloway?
I had a gut feeling as soon as I stepped on campus. My multiple (!) visits before choosing Royal Holloway as my firm choice gave me an insight into the community vibe on campus. I could see myself here.
What inspired you about it?
I was inspired by the friendly atmosphere of the department and their personal touch when they sat me down for a chat about why I was interested in Earth Sciences, and what I hoped to eventually do.
How did your time at Royal Holloway help lead to your career?
My time as a student ambassador definitely gave me a wider understanding of student recruitment and that led me into my current role. Being President of the Lyell Geoscience Society helped me develop as a leader and increase my knowledge of events management.
What advice would you give to anyone thinking about a career in your area?
Be aware of your own personal strengths and skills and understand how you use them to their full potential but also, I was proactive in getting work experience in the Higher Education sector whilst I was at Royal Holloway, this helped with my employability straight after university.
