What 3 words best describe your experience as a student of Shannon College?
Fun, Entertaining, Educational.
What college memory still makes you smile?
Every single one of them ! From chairing the charity committee and raising €8,000 to the AHC in Manchester. Every Dress Dance and of course college events.
If you had to re-live your time in Shannon College, would you do anything differently?
Listen more to financial accounting 😅
What advice would you give to your 20 year old self?
Take every opportunity you get ! You don’t realise how fast college will go! Push yourself academically while also enjoying every part of the social aspect of college!!
In your life, what achievement are you most proud of?
Setting up a business in the midst of a pandemic. Probably one of the most difficult projects I’ve done but also one of the most rewarding. #SqueezEase
What qualities do you think are most important to have for a rewarding career?
What has been the biggest challenge you have faced during Covid-19?
I think for everyone not being able to see the ones you love. Not being able to go for a pint with friends or even a cup of tea with a grandparent.
Do you have words of wisdom that you try to live by?
Turn your notions into reality! Make things happen and don’t look back!
What advice do you have for current SCHM students who are looking for inspiration and hope?
You guys have so much ahead of you to look forward to in Shannon College. Online learning is certainly not the same and it can impose some difficulties but hang in there, Nelly’s will be open in no time and John will only be delighted to see you all! We’re all going through this tough time but nothing happens to you, it happens for you. See the positive in the negatives, try take advantage of this time. Do an online course that can further your knowledge and prepare you for your placement. The ShanFam is huge and there is always someone a phonecall away.
