Your Help

It’s with great pleasure (and amazement) that I say I have over 1500+ followers over 4 social media platforms, but I’d love to grow this even further, so that IT Girl can try to help one more girl out there into STEM and to grow a bigger network at the same time. So please share http://www.TashaITGirl.com on any platform you see fit, or if you have any ideas it would be great to collaborate with ๐Ÿค“ Thank you x

Degree Results

From the moment you finish your final exam until the moment you receive your results is a nerve wracking time, however much calculating of grades you’ve done and pep talks you and others have given to yourself, it is always on your mind.

A week ago I woke up very early morning to the news thatย I had achieved First Class Honours in Business Computing with Professional Practice BSc and an A* in my dissertation… it still feels very surreal! I’ve loved school and it feels weird that for now education has come to an end.

When I found out my result I was in Cornwall on a family holiday, staying with my grandparents whilst my parents were in their caravan at another site. So I went straight into my grandparents and told them, they hopped straight out of bed and then we spontaneously got ready and drove over to my Mum and Dad’s caravan to tell them… about 6am! The reactions of my family definitely were the best bit about achieving the result.

The messaging between all my friends from my course and finding out what others had achieved throughout that day was fun, very proud of my peers and how hard they have worked over the last 3/4 years! Especially finding out my tutor group’s dissertation grades was such a nice moment after spending many hours with them over the year. Cannot wait for graduation in a month’s time and to thank the staff of the Computer Science Department for all of their support over the last 4 years in person.

I know for sure that my experiences and my degree has set me up well for my future, and I will always be thankful for that.

Made In Brunel

img_0208Yesterday evening I had the opportunity to present my dissertation to industry experts at Brunel University’s Made In Brunel: Software Innovation event! It was a really great evening and I met some very impressive people. I really enjoyed being able to talk through my dissertation project and gain feedback on the concept that I have been working on with GSK.

Four years ago I met one of my great friends on my course at a Made In Brunel event, which we were invited to as prospective students, since then it has always been a goal to present too, so I’m really happy that I was able to come full circle and end my university career where it had started.
