A year on from graduation, and this past year has taught me that I am resilient; more able than I thought; that I enjoy challenging myself and I am capable of doing things I would never have imagined. Being out of the university bubble totally refocused me and I ended up with a very detailed idea of what I wanted from my career.

I also realised that setbacks aren't the be all and end all - I didn't achieve my initial plan for the year and graduated feeling totally uncertain and not knowing what I was going to do, and every unsuccessful interview had been a knock to my confidence. Within a month of graduating I got an amazing opportunity and everything fell into place

That you have to make the most of uni! You never get the same social opportunity again as Halls in your 1st year.

This! At uni you have a freedom that you'll never have again. Make the most of your uni city, do things that you might not have done before or get the chance to do again, take a risk in this respect from time to time,

Particularly in final year, make the most of every minute you get with people who you won't see a much following graduation. Enjoy the freedom, the independence and being in the final step before entering "the real world".

Life has taught me that the proverbial can hit the fan at any time, so be prepared!
