      Yeh I have quite a few friends! When I started at Thales loads of young guys and girls (yes 24 is still young!) started with me. We hang out at lunch and sometimes take small breaks to sit and chat, we even have instant messenger (like facebook chat) at work. We hang out at the weekends, play football, the usual stuff. Right now we even have a Fifa tournament running, I’m currently in third place (Spurs all the way).

      Yes! I moved into Sheffield’s student village in my first year here – I knew no one in Sheffield before I moved here – that gave me the change to meet lots of new people! I also joined a few societies and played for the university netball team! In my office, we have regular socials to the pub and random places like the climbing wall.

      Haha, yes I have friends; I keep in contact with my school mates in London, my uni mates in London and Bath, as well as my work mates (usually down the pub on a Friday). Most of the engieers at my company are sociable and we’re always organising pub visits, bowling, bouldering, the cinema etc.
