Kate is a 23-year-old from Berkshire, England who has a degree in Neuroscience from the University of Sussex.

Not knowing what to do after graduating, Kate decided to work for an advertising agency in the pharmaceutical sector. However, a few months in, Kate realized this job wasn’t for her, so she asked herself “what is?”, which is when she found Edumadic!

Kate was initially taking refresher courses during the program to better prepare her for Grad school, and re-igniting her Science Blog. But most of her time has been spent exploring the world of science journalism, a career that Kate always wanted to pursue after graduating, but was always too nervous to take the leap. She would never have had the free time to give journalism a shot while at home alongside a full time job, and also preparing for Grad School.

“12 weeks with Edumadic is the perfect amount of time to travel while also giving me a safe space to take risks and experiment with what I’m interested in”.

Kate has achieved a lot since she joined us. She’s already been paid for her writing, so can now say she’s a professional science writer! She applied to a Masters program in Neuroscience at King’s College in London in our first location, and got accepted into it in the second! She has also lined up a job working for a charity that focuses on research in Early Child Development, and will begin once she returns home.

When Kate isn’t hard at work and balancing all of her projects, you can find her lounging by the pool or hunting down the best carrot cake!
