Meet our Placement Student Deborah!
Hiya! I am a Creative and Professional Writing student, and I joined the Enterprise team in September 2021. Three years ago, I gave up my Chemical Engineering scholarship at the University of Edinburgh to come to UWE Bristol. A brave, scary, but thrilling step that allowed me to gain the confidence to pursue my other passions, such as creativity.
Since 2019 I have been developing an online creativity mentorship programme to help people encounter, develop and unlock their creative juices.
With this role, I hope to support students in building their self-assurance, challenge them to think outside the box and experiment out of their comfort zone.
What did I want to be when I grew up?
A ballerina or a librarian.
Favourite song to keep me motivated:
September by Earth Wind and Fire
3 things I would take to a desert island:
A hardcover book, a knife, and a blanket.
An unexpected fact about me:
I have six names, all the family names from both sides.
You can come and chat with me about:
· Creativity and ideation
· Presentations and public speaking
