What have you been up to since winning the Undergraduate Awards?
Since receiving the Undergraduate award I have been working on my phd in Irish at UCC. It has been going well and I must say that I really enjoy it.
What did winning the Undergraduate Awards mean to you?
It was great to know that all the hard work I had put in during college was worth it. It validated all the effort I had put in and of course I was delighted as I knew the award would help me pursue a career and acquire research funding.
What tips do you have for students entering the Undergraduate Awards?
My advice would be to choose your submission, to trust your judgement and to keep your fingers well crossed.
