What are you doing now?Emily Simons.jpg

I’m in my third year studying Adult Nursing at the University of Leeds, working on the front line during the COVID-19 pandemic.

What advice would you give your 17-year-old self?

Everything that seems like it matters so much (arguments with friends, going to parties, fitting in etc) will not matter in a few years.

Concentrate on yourself and work hard!

What are you most proud of?

Working on the front line during the COVID-19 pandemic and making a difference to people’s lives during this tough time - I never thought I was capable of doing anything like I have whilst doing my degree.

If any students are considering doing nursing, I’d tell them to go for it!
