Tell us about yourself

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.

Why did you apply for the STInt Programme?

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!

Where are you doing your ‘STInt’ in industry?

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.
