College: Trinity College Dublin Student Ambassador 2022

I think the most exciting aspect of the programme is that you can be creative and flexible as you want in the role. For my event, I decided to create a panel talk around the theme of Diversity in Design in engineering. Engineers Ireland supported me every step of the way and made the whole process enjoyable. Having a role as a Student Ambassador doesn’t only mean you’re representing your college, but also gives you a platform to share something you’re passionate about in the Engineering world.
