Who are our ambassadors?
Chanelle studies Economics and Accounting, and did her placement year as a financial reporting analyst. She also helped train other ambassadors to give campus tours.
As well as the flexibility of the role, being an Ambassador was an opportunity for me to inform students about university life and give them a real life insight. In some cases you get to see students who know nothing about university, becoming informed and changing their mind and considering it as a next step for them.
I love being able to impact students’ lives, by providing them with real life experiences.
My skills development:
- Confidence:carrying out campus tours allowed me to build my confidence as I would have to speak and engage with new people every time
- Self-motivation: being asked to train new student ambassadors helped me realise what I achieved which improved my drive to accomplish more
- Engaging young people: when helping students complete activities you always have to make sure you have their full attention so that they could complete their tasks
You are able to develop so many skills without thinking about it. You also get to meet so many new students that you may not have met before. I have made some friends for life and that was from being an ambassador.
