We asked our bloggers what their greatest achievement has been this year and we were pretty impressed with their accomplishments!
Getting 70% in my Global Current Affairs exam! But outside of that, I had the opportunity to interview Kate Nash and get my article published.
My greatest achievement this year is quite simple, I’ve completed my degree and I’m now qualified to practice as a social worker. I never thought I would ever be able to say something like that but I can now, and it’s something no one can ever take away from me.
(We’ll be sad to see Michelle go, hasn’t she been a brilliant blogger?)
Being accepted as a summer undergraduate research assistant for a very exciting project has capped a really brilliant year for me. I’ll be contributing to a project – Forensic Footprints – that’s seeking to develop software to help law enforcement officers in the UK and abroad process footprints at crime scenes more easily.
I have just today got back from a two week trip to Colombia with BU, we were working out there with EAFIT university. It was a great achievement as it lead to travelling alone, a big change for me, as well as achieving some awesome physical and mental goals as well as helping me develop my ideas for future careers.
My biggest achievement this year is getting a first for my second year. I learnt a lot about time management and how to handle group situations in order to get my work completed to a high standard. While it was stressful at times, the hard work paid off and I am looking forward to my placement year and the opportunities it may bring.
This year I made a resolution: to blog every day. Some days were certainly harder than others, but with this month’s page views at an all-time record (2,209 and counting) I would call it an unqualified success. And while I might not have written a book this year, in words alone my blog posts more than make up for it.
Being a Student Ambassador not only helped me adapt to various social and professional situations but allowed me to grow as a person. Especially when taking part in the Mentoring programme this year, where I was mentoring year 10s through career ideas, C.V. creating and informing them of how university takes place.
At times I felt just as mentored as the students, with the sessions giving me an insight into how helping and inspiring younger generations can make a difference to future experiences, both for the students and myself.
I would say that my greatest achievement this year would be all the hard work I poured into my exam revision and coursework all while being a student ambassador, which included working with secondary school kids and working at AFC Bournemouth
Now, who’s ready for September?
