I would advise my younger self to just say 'yes' to every opportunity that comes your way. No responsibility is beneath you. With determination you will progress to have a successful career.
What advice would you give to UEL current students preparing to graduate?
Be kinder to yourself. Always know your worth. The world is bigger than you think it is and your worries aren't as important as you think they are, just be you as you pursue your programme.

I love meditation. It is quite possibly the best free stress reliever ever.

Yes, great university that provides the networking and platform to build your knowledge and career.
