Stepping out of my comfort zone has certainly been a key part of scheme, but has led to experiences I wouldn't change for the world. If you had said to me a year ago I would be sailing around the UK, presenting at the University of Oxford, attending award ceremonies at the Houses of Parliament and even singing the introduction theme song to an animation, I wouldn't have believed you. Primarily, I wouldn't have thought the variety of these different activities would be available under one job description. Secondly, I would have completely lacked the confidence. I remember the very first school I visited had only about fifteen people in the audience. I could hardly sleep the night before, and was a complete bundle of nerves on my way to the classroom when it was time to do my presentation. Feeling sick to my stomach, I just went for it and ended up doing exactly what I had planned. No slip ups, no stuttering and good feedback at the end. I just took the plunge. Since then, I have tried to apply the same attitude to all the daunting opportunities this internship has thrown at me. Daunting, but exciting. Every single time, finding the courage to do things I never thought I would do, has paid off. At the Royal Foundation of St Katherine’s Dock, I presented my ‘Time to Shine’ story in front of an audience which would have terrified me nine months ago. I was still nervous this time round, but I knew I was capable of doing a good job of it – and I did. I do not yet know what the future holds in store for me. Wherever fate takes me, I know the wonderful memories of this internship will pave the way for me.
