    I need a few weeks more, but last time I went some of the staff were soo rude making me look bad in front of the others for ridiculous things.
    Luckily the rest of the staff were okay I suppose.
    Its the only place I can go for experience but I'm terrified of going back ?

    If it really is the only place you can go, suck it up and go back, you'll feel a lot better after you've done it and you have it and it's out of the way! People being rude to you says more about them than you, and we can hope that karma will get them.

    Hopefully karma will get them. Just she was so rude like intentionally trying to humiliate me. But I couldn't say anything because she is a popular member of staff

    It's really hard in some situations but sometimes (most times) I think we should just call people out when they do things like that. Like say point blank 'are you deliberately trying to humiliate me' and see how they react. If the person very obviously was then calling them on it will most likely embarrass them. Don't let one nasty person get in the way of your career development, that's the most important thing, because the world is full of them. Be resilient.

    Then I'd just accept it and use it as an opportunity to let her know you felt it regardless so she and everyone listening knows how you feel about her talking to you like that. Now she knows, if it happens again everyone will know she's doing it on purpose and what kind of person she is. Good luck
