Why did you choose to study at UEL?
I chose to study at UEL because of the huge range of courses available. Knowing that the wealth of knowledge my lectures had as well as the support I knew I would get made it the right choice for me.
What is your one special memory of your time at UEL?
Getting 70/80 in an exam! The support of my tutor and classmates made sure I understood the topic I was studying. Student unions nights were also great fun too!
What have you done since graduating from UEL?
I completed a masters and went on to work as a mentor for young adults with autism. As a direct result of my time at UEL. It unlocked my passion for working with autistic young people!
What is your current job role? And what does it involve?
I work in philanthropy for an Autism charity! I speak to major donors. And family foundations to generate money for the charity.
How did UEL help you get to where you are now?
My experience at UEL in developmental psychology as well as my previous experience has made it so easy for me to talk about autism and education with passion!
What advice would you give your younger self?
It will all work out in the end! Psychology is a great degree to do if you don't know what your future holds. And Uni will be the best experience of your life.
What advice would you give to UEL current students preparing to graduate?
Just breathe! Life is what you make of it, and if you are motivated to work hard, you will be fine!
