Katie

"My name’s Katie I am currently in my second year of studying History. I chose to go to university because I wanted the opportunity to grow in my independence and meet new people. I also really enjoyed studying History at A-level and wanted to learn more about my subject. I became a mentor because I am interested in working with young people in the future. I hope to guide my mentees into making the right decision for them and ensure they feel confident in the options available for them."

 

George

"Hey! I am George and I'm studying Pharmacy at UEA. I was really passion about biology and chemistry and interested in healthcare so studying Pharmacy seemed like a natural choice. I was the first generation of my family to venture into the world of university so I know how daunting it can seem. In my secondary school I spent time tutoring younger students in science and French and I loved it so I thought the mentoring scheme would be great, along with giving me the opportunity to help out some young people think about their future."

 

Rachel

"Hey! My name is Rachel and I'm a third year history student. I chose to come to university as I wanted to push myself and improve my studies. I have always enjoyed studying and I saw university as the chance to study something I really enjoy in depth and then specialise in this subject. In the future I would love to incorporate my passion for history and interest in travelling, perhaps going abroad and conducting historical conservation. I chose to be a mentor as I would love others to be as enthusiastic about university as I was. By helping others understand more about university, what we do here and how we get here, I hope it inspires my mentees to want to prolong their studies and go to university."
