Don’t get trapped in your 9-5

There is so much more out there. Especially at my age, it’s easy for people to worry that when coming out of university they must get themselves on the career ladder and secure a 9-5 (or longer) job in London. There is SO much more out there.

I worked in London, then at 24 realised I had nothing holding me back or down to staying here. Go and explore, I went to work in Kenya for a year and it was hands down the best thing I ever did. Working outside revolutionises how you think and work. I enjoy working with different people and exploring new places so that helped.

If I'm outside I'm happy! Fell running, mountain biking, climbing or skiing I just love getting out and pushing myself as hard as I can. As a women in adventure, I have found female role models really inspiring and motivating. There are definite moments I have really doubted myself and considered packing something in or giving up, but it's at these points looking to someone I can relate to, be that a friend or pro, really helps. Though this project I would love to find more of this type of relateable inspiration as well as being part of the wider movement to help remove any barriers to participation.
