I came to Teesside to start a new chapter of my life on my own and ended up finding a family – Teesside feels like home.

Why did you apply to be a student ambassador?

I applied to be an ambassador as I was always intrigued by the enthusiasm of other student ambassadors I saw on campus. A lot of my friends are ambassadors and I've always admired the role they play in representing the University and showcasing what Teesside University has to offer.

What kind of things do you get involved in?

I've been involved in UCAS fairs, motivational visits, photoshoots, summer school, psychology workshops, campus tours and the VIP gala dinner.

Best thing about being an ambassador?

The best part about being an ambassador is being surrounded by such a vibrant group and meeting so many exciting people through the work we do.

What would you say to someone thinking about signing up to be an ambassador?

To anyone interested in applying, I would say do it immediately! You'll never make a better decision. Being a student ambassador has made me grow as a person. I believe that being an ambassador allows you to develop so many skills – management, presentation, communication and social skills to name a few – and they all prepare you for a life of success ahead.

Best thing about Teesside University?

My favourite thing about Teesside University is the people. I came to Teesside to start a new chapter of my life on my own and ended up finding a family – Teesside feels like home.
