Wanted to make sure people had as good of experience in the uni process as I did

Do you feel being LGBT has affected your career decisions?

Nope! Has I’m just me no matter my sexuality or gender

Have you had any reactions from colleagues about being LGBT, either good or bad?

As a ambassador it is a very open and welcoming job and met some great fellow LGBTQ+ workmates and students who are going through their own journey and have a person to talk to

Did you have any role models growing up (LGBT, STEM, totally unrelated.)?

I think the first LGBT scientist I found was Alan Turing, I use to love maths and computing and he was the first person who really made me think I can do this 🙂 Also random but Cher like yasss queen honestly best twitter account :3

What are your plans for the future?

Continue in my studies and specialise and continue supporting upcoming students whilst I’m at university
