University life over lockdown was a unique experience and definitely not what I expected in the first year of University. Everything from the labs and lectures to the exams and communication between peers was completely online. In a way, I think this made us more responsible for our own learning as we had to keep ourselves accountable for staying up to date with lectures, labs, and assignments. It definitely required a lot of patience with ourselves and each other, in finding ways to stay productive and with the many changes in learning and coursework. Overall, the University and course coordinators were quite supportive and it was still an enjoyable experience, although I am looking forward to attending on campus again.
In 10 years’ time, I would love to be working in some or working in or towards some sort of clinical profession. Right now I am passionate about doing well in achieving this, but there are still many other areas of learning/opportunities that interest me, so I am open to whatever opportunities enlighten me in the future.
I wouldn’t know where to start. I think a lot of the problems in this world are so complex and multifaceted that they cannot simply be solved, but require input and effort from lots of different angles. On another level, I would love to make some sort of contribution towards scientific research, especially in the clinical sense towards prevention and treatment of health issues.
