About the Placement:

I took on the role of an ‘ambassador’ for Leeds Girls Can. This involved helping promote and deliver sports sessions for women in Leeds to encourage them become more active. I attended multiple events to promote the project and am currently in the process of organising a beginners squash programme.


Working as an ambassador for Leeds Girls Can has really helped to improve my confidence and teamwork skills. This amazing opportunity has given me further knowledge of how to try and get more women active and allowed me to experience of a ‘real-life’ working environment.
