Hey guys. Sadly, this is going to be my last blog post. So much happened in the past few weeks, and so much more is about to happen!
Right now I’m typing from London, where I am working as a Community Facilitator for NCS The Challenge. It’s definitely proving to be hard work, but very rewarding! It’s only been three days and I have already faced so many personal challenges. My group of young people has been so ambitious that it has required a lot of effort on my part in order to support them properly. It’s been incredibly stressful at times, but I am so proud of them and their project, and hopefully everything is going to go according to plan.
And after this, what’s next?
Well, thanks to the Graduate Gateways programme developed by the University’s Career Service, I secured a graduate role as Marketing and Development Executive for a small company operating within the education sector. I am starting as soon as I finish my job for NCS, and will keep the role for a minimum of 6 months. , after which… we’ll see! 🙂
As my role would involve operating mainly online and via phone, I was granted permission to remain in Leicester, and work from there. Needless to say, I am over the moon about this! 😀
I get to work, and stay in the place where I still have many friends and most of my life right now.
I rented a small studio, and am getting used to living alone after 3 years of student housing and university housemates. It’s tough, but I have been so busy that I never really had the time to feel lonely, and I will make sure to keep up this lifestyle! 🙂
And that’s it for me. I can say I am sorted for the next 6 months, and am already thinking about what might happen next.
But you won’t hear about that…
You’re new blogger, Emily, will talk to you about her own experience of Psychology, and about the incredible environment that is the University of Leicester. Her posts are already very interesting and I have no doubts she will do an amazing job!
I wish you all best of luck with your studies, your projects, and your life. 🙂
