Quotes from Previous Ambassadors
"Being an ambassador has heightened my interest and love for technology. So much so that I have planned a masters course in data and computer science. It has allowed me to gain leadership skills and work in organising on a large scale. I had to liaise with a wide range of people from the University, which will help when in the workplace." - Rhiann, University of Exeter
"It has definitely made me more confident to attend tech related events e.g. I participated in Hack Cambridge in January. Although I've done some coding myself before CF:G, I think that without doing this ambassador role, I wouldn't have felt I have valid credentials to apply and take part in a hackathon. After graduation, I'll definitely make the most of all the meet ups available on meetup.com etc and feel confident attending alone." - Nadia, University of Cambridge
