Aideen Ryan

PALS Leader in BSc Dietetics

I was interested in PALS because I felt like giving back, helping 1st years settle in and making them feel at ease with the course. The role was also adding to my experiences and my CV.

I have gained confidence to talk in front of a big group and also realising how far I've come as a student in a year. It has given me confidence and belief in myself to keep pushing myself in my course.

As far as future employment is concerned I will definitely be using the skills I have gained for my future career. I am now competent speaking and explaining things clearly to a group.
