Hi there! I have just been welcomed in to the big bad world, graduating from Northumbria University with a degree in English Language with TESOL. I was very lucky to find work straight out of university however it was no way near my dream job, so I continued my hunt for something better. And the wait was worth it. I have now been offered a job at Newcastle Students’ Union as an Activities Support Worker; something I actually WANT to do! Being dropped in at the deep end (Fresher’s!) I await my start date and it can’t come quick enough!
