Hi, I’m Victoria! I’m from Clondalkin in West Dublin. I graduated from UCD in 2018 with a BAFS degree in Actuarial and Financial Studies. I have just finished my first year of the PME at DCU. My specialism subjects are maths and economics.
I am currently training to become a secondary school mathematics teacher. I’m hoping that the STInt program will allow me to learn more about other STEM careers so that I can better inform students about the various career and study options available to them. In class, I often tell my students about how I’ve used various math skills in previous jobs. This internship program should be a fantastic way for me to expand my awareness of STEM applications in the real world and hopefully equip me with the knowledge to motivate students to follow STEM career paths in the future.
I’m delighted to have accepted a role at Intel for summer 2021. Intel is a multinational corporation and technology company based in Leixlip however my internship will be done remotely this summer. I will be working in the MPE (Manufacturing & Product Engineering) division. I am looking forward to learning more about Intel and the work they do during my internship.
