I decided to go to the University of Surrey because it was one of the leading universities for the subject I wanted to study. I also liked that the assessment method suited my learning style and needs.
At Surrey I developed skills in research, as well as nutrition and dietetics, and started to understand my strengths and weaknesses. One of my favourite things about Surrey was the people I met, both lecturers and students. I met people who inspired me to pursue the career I am in now.
I am now working at Salford NHS Foundation Trust as a specialist dietitian in major trauma neurosurgery and neurorehabilitation. Soon I will be moving into a new post as a part-time specialist gastro dietitian and studying a masters in public health at the University of Manchester. The years I spent at Surrey gave me the skills, but also the inspiration, I needed to pursue a career in academia.
