Truly blessed are words that spring to mind when I reflect on the past month. To pick up on last months blog I had one camp completed already in Castlewellen and had just began my week down in the beautiful Glencull where I was a member of the Fáilte team. I am so lucky to […]

Tuesday December 23rd 2014 | Sarah Allan

Well its official… semester 1 is over, exams are over are over and I’m sitting in front of a lovely fire at home in Donegal with my family. Dunaras has been evacuated for the month. So for this blog I decided to do something different. I’m sharing the best memories from my first semester through […]

Feet up in front of the fire, writing my final blog of 2014. First semester, that’s a wrap! There really is no place like home at Christmas time. After a jam-packed 13 weeks in QUB it’s safe to say I am delighted to be back home for a few weeks with the O’Hagan clan. My […]

Time flies when you’re having fun!

Tuesday December 2nd 2014 | Sarah Allan

Well you know what they say, time flies when you’re having FUN! It’s crazy to think that I’m now going into my 14th week of college (aka, study week for the dreaded exams!!!!!!)

Entering the Big Bad World!

Tuesday December 2nd 2014 | Cora McNulty

It’s hard to believe 9 weeks ago, a pale faced, nauseous, nervous wreck hit the M1, far from bright eyed and bushy tailed at 6am to begin her new venture as a student nurse.  Delighted with myself for getting as far as the big smoke without any major mishaps and with 45 minutes to spare, […]

Belfast has been a roller coaster of emotions

Monday December 1st 2014 | Caoimhe O'Hagan

I’m so excited to be writing my first blog of this new chapter. I have been volunteering for the Michaela Foundation for over two years now so it is a privilege to be one of this year’s scholars! I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my first year at Queen’s than representing an […]

Friday September 26th 2014 | aoife

An blog deireanach. The final blog. Can’t cope. Has anyone any idea how difficult it is to write a last blog like this while keeping the clichés to a minimum? Near impossible. But I’ll take a stab at it and, after I’ve reflected on the past year and thanked everyone who has made it what […]

Only the beginning

Friday September 26th 2014 | killian

12 months ago I received a phone call into work from a certain Úna Kelly.  It was a phone call that would offer me the chance to become one of six Michaela Foundation Scholars and a phone call that would quite frankly change my life…big words but wholeheartedly true. As I sit down to write […]

‘Time tooooooo say goodbyeeeee’

Thursday September 4th 2014 | fionnuala

As I open microsoft word for my very last blog, the classical song ‘Time to say goodbye’ is ringing in my ears! Don’t panic I won’t attatch my rendition! Twelve months later, eleven blogs written and here I am writing the very last one. I have now reached the end of my Michaela Foundation Scholar journey […]
