Msc Environmental Biology, PhD Biological Sciences
Throughout my undergraduate degree at Swansea University I was terrified at presenting and talking in front of people and avoided it as much as I could. However, I received some fantastic training from lecturers within the Biosciences Department at the end of my BSc degree and during my MSc which began to really help me tackle my fears and start to build my confidence.
What ultimately helped me get where I am today were the opportunities provided by Swansea University to present to fellow students and lecturers at seminars, such as the Postgraduate Seminar Series which allowed me to develop my skills and get over my worries in a safe, non-judgemental space. If someone had told me that I would be assigned ‘Schools Outreach Representative’ whilst at university I would never have believed them.
