My proudest moment was winning a National Student Award from the Institute of Quarrying. It made all the hard work – 40 days identifying rocks in the wind and rain of the Lake District – worthwhile.

I’ve been on some great field trips. Fieldwork was interactive and fun. I especially loved the trip to Ullapool in Scotland: it felt like the defining moment of my degree.
