What were you doing before this traineeship?

Before the traineeship, I was working full time at Suffolk County Council as Business Support to the Learning Disability Team. I had also been travelling/volunteering in Africa.

What has been your favourite part of the traineeship so far?

Definitely the variety of projects to get stuck into. I have to mention as well the trips to Hampton Court and Liverpool Museums. Visiting museums is one of my hobbies, so getting paid to do that (for research) was an added bonus.

Quick fire five:

1. Favourite type of cheese?

All cheese (Except Blue, I don’t know why anyone eats something that smells so bad)

2. Childhood dream job?

I wanted to be either a professional footballer for Arsenal, or a Train Driver. I also wanted to be King of England if you can consider that as a job. Not sure where I’d send my application.

3. Which three people you would invite to a dinner party (dead or alive)?

Anne Boleyn, Sir David Attenborough, J.R.R. Tolkein

4. Favourite past time?

Visiting museums with my family, playing football in Primary School (It was legit the most important thing in my life at that time) or watching the first Jurassic Park film.

5. Favourite Animal?

The Siberian Tiger, because a more beautiful creature on Earth there is not, or a Mountain Goat, because not even gravity bothers them that much.
