Hi, I am Clodagh Murray and I am from Dublin, Ireland. I have just finished my third year of studying Primary School Teaching in Dublin City University (DCU). At university, I specialise in Digital Learning and I have a passion for developing people and seeing them achieve their potential. I enjoy cooking, running and rugby. I am actively involved in rugby and as part of my ambition to get more female participation in the game, I now coach an U12 Girls’ rugby team in St. Mary’s College Rugby Club, which is my local rugby club.
I applied for this internship for many reasons. Firstly, I enjoy the opportunity and challenge of innovation as I strongly believe that STEM is a driver for social and economic progress. I believe that this STEM Internship can provide an opportunity to become an advocate for STEM subjects in schools. As a Digital Learning Specialism student in DCU, I have a keen interest in technology and the benefits associated with it within the classroom to support and promote learning for the 21st century child.
I am really excited to have accepted a role at Microsoft this summer as Program Manager Intern. Microsoft is a multinational technology company whose Irish campus is based in Leopardstown, Co. Dublin. Microsoft’s mission is to empower every person across the world through the power of technology. During my internship, I hope that I can further my insight into the new ideas that technology can provide us as teachers. I hope to develop both personally and professionally in Microsoft I am looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that this role presents me with.
