With semester one coming to an end, it has been a busy couple of weeks with final projects! From group projects, to quizzes, to partner projects and individual assignments, there has been a bunch to do! After our last day of classes, my classmates and I were able to celebrate a job well done! Our program is formed so that we take every module with the same group of students. Needless to say, we all had the opportunity to get very close. Although we all had some rough points during the year and felt overwhelmed with work occasionally, we really came together and helped each other however possible. Whether it be re-explaining concepts from class, giving feedback on projects, or just giving someone a boost of encouragement during a 4 hour lecture on a Monday morning! I am so proud to be part of a group of people who are so positive, insightful, supportive, friendly, and hardworking! Although we encouraged each other to work harder, I never felt that anyone was competitive in a selfish way. We were truly a team and learned so much together this semester.
The other day, the CEO of Ryan Air, Michael O’Leary who is a Trinity College Alum, came back to Trinity for a presentation. It is nice to see what incredible things people do after graduation and even more so their love for this institution. I am interested to see what kind of an impact my classmates will have after they return to their home countries all across the world after the end of the program. There are definitely some talented people who aspire to do amazing things!
