Studying sociology at Surrey was fantastic for so many reasons. The one that stands out for me was the chance to meet and work with people from so many different backgrounds and countries. Being from a small rural town, meeting people from Sri Lanka, South Africa, China, Germany and more was a truly eye-opening experience. This added to my university experience in a big way. Being surrounded by some brilliant students and academics was really humbling.
I now work at Surrey Business School as an Alumni and Development Assistant. The part of my job I enjoy the most is that we are giving people the chance to make the most out of their talents. Being a student at Surrey myself helped me in my career as it gave me the confidence to go out into the workplace and know I could make a difference.
