Tell us about yourself

Hi, I’m Emma! I am in my fourth year of my Bachelor’s in Science Education at  Maynooth University. My specialism subjects are chemistry and biology.

Why did you apply for the STInt Programme?

I applied to the STEM Teacher Internship programme to gain experience in a field outside of teaching. It will be a valuable experience to work for a company and apply my knowledge from my degree. I believe teaching students about the real-world application of the knowledge they learn in school is done better through someone who has first-hand experience. Therefore, this opportunity would offer an advantage to my students to learn from a teacher with a unique experience working for a company.

Where are you doing your ‘STInt’ in industry?

I’m delighted to have accepted a role at Alexion Pharmaceuticals for summer 2021.  Alexion is a global biopharmaceutical company focused on serving patients and families affected by rare diseases and devastating conditions through the discovery, development and commercialization of life-changing medicines. I’m looking forward to learn more about careers in Biology and Chemistry!
