Our table at today’s Higher Education Fair!
This time last year I was nervously waiting to start my A Levels and fighting to finish my BTEC early. This time two years ago (wow that feels like a long time ago), I was attending Higher Education Fairs trying to work out what the hell this uni thing was all about. Back then I was clueless I didn’t know what to expect, what I could do and honestly I wasn’t that confident. I’ve said before and I’ll say it again the Student Ambassadors helped me a lot in making a decision and realising I could do this.
So when the opportunity came up to go to one of the fairs that I eagerly walked around and help students I decide I jumped at the chance. I got to work with one of my favourite members of staff too, always a bonus. So after driving this morning (I’m definitely getting there guys!) I got to uni to be picked up and driven to Uxbridge College, hands down the nicest college I’ve seen so far (sorry QMC!). We were given food, drinks and hot drink vouchers as well as talking to a lot of students. I love it when I speak to people and I can see they are as nervous as I was back then, because I can listen and tell them not only the things they want to know but the things I wish I’d known before I started. I love my job and although right now I want to curl up and sleep after sitting in traffic for 45 minutes I’m happy and I know I’ve done a good job.
I hope that my blog will be filled in the next few years with my life as a Student Ambassador because I’m so grateful and proud of myself getting this job, it’s honestly blown me away and it’s something I’m good at. I couldn’t ask for a better job.
