Hi. I’m Michelle! I’m from Dublin and I lived and worked here my whole life. I am currently in my 4th Year at UCD. My specialism subjects are maths and physics. I’m now finishing up my first teaching placement year.
I applied to the STInt Programme because I wanted to see what a STEM working environment could look like. As I had always wanted to become a teacher, I didn’t have as much exposure to industry-based work and so now with STInt, I can finally tell my students why we need to know Pythagoras’ Theorem!
I’m excited to have accepted a role at Xilinx for summer 2021. Xilinx are involved with technology and based in Citywest, Dublin. My internship will most likely be done remotely but may move to a hybrid style of working later in the summer – I’d love to go on site and see what it’s like. I will be working with the software engineers in my role and I am excited to be participating in the type of work that I never would have previously considered.
